KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Once a month KCPD Chief Darryl Forte joins the FOX 4 Morning Show to chat about issues around the area.

Thurs. September 17 Chief Forte discussed the increase in the number of homicides in Kansas City and how it relates to previous years.

"I've been trying to encourage family and friends, if you know someone who has been involved in criminal activity or has been threatened, contact the police and that's where our role comes in," Chief Forte said.  "We have to do a better job of developing relationships with the community. That's what we've been working on for the last four years."
