KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) — Police and other law enforcement authorities announced Friday several measures to combat gun-related violent crime in Kansas City.

Authorities at the news conference held at the U.S. District Courthouse discussed their new and ongoing efforts while stressing that the help of the community is crucial.

One initiative includes a reboot of the federal “Project Safe Neighborhoods” program, where local and federal authorities will individually target a small number of the city’s most violent offenders.

According to Kansas City police, the summer is historically a peak time for gun violence throughout the city. This comes as police and their federal, state and community partners launch initiatives in hope of reducing crime.

After 18 months of evaluation, they’ve adopted a strategy that has made a major impact on violent crime in other cities, such as Tampa, Florida.

Rick Armstrong, president of the Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission, also announced that a grand total of $25,000 is now being offered for anonymous tips leading to an arrest in a Kansas City, Missouri, homicide through the Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline.

This is up from the previous $10,000 reward.
