January 28, 2016

(AP) – The Kansas City Police Department announced Thursday that two sergeants and seven detectives in its Crimes Against Children section have been suspended with pay while it investigates claims that some cases haven’t been addressed in a timely manner.
The department said it launched an internal probe after Chief Darryl Forte became aware of issues in October.
“It is important that we do all that we can for all victims, especially those who cannot speak for themselves,” Forte told The Kansas City Star.
The department says it is concerned that some serious cases with vulnerable victims may not have been handled appropriately. Police spokeswoman Kari Thompson declined to elaborate further on what prompted the investigation
