KCPD puts freeze on hiring new cops

KCPD has stopped hiring new police officers, keeping 15 positions open, as the Justice Department investigates how the department hires and promotes, Christine Vendel reports. The freeze is a voluntary move. The DOJ announced last summer that it would look at KCPD hiring because the number of black and Hispanic officers is “lower than would be expected for an agency of this type.”
