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

Friday, May 20, Chief Forte discussed how difficult it is when the force loses an officer, especially if it's in the line of duty. Chief Forte says he'd like to see more of an effort to create programs and opportunities for officers to seek help when they need it.

"What we do every day is not normal," Chief Forte said. "You don't know from what call to call you're going to."
