After a total makeover, KCPD now has the first “Soft Room” in Missouri installed by the nonprofit Project Beloved.

Detectives from the Special Victims Unit (SVU) will use the soft room to accommodate and interview survivors of sexual assault and trauma. A soft room is a critical component of Trauma-Informed Care, allowing survivors to feel physically and emotionally safe. This can have a positive impact on the interview process.

The makeover included carpet, art work, furniture, and lighting. KCPD is grateful for another nonprofit, the Police Foundation of Kansas City, which funded this remodel. This project would not be possible without them.
