While spending on public safety is increased in a new budget proposed by the city, KCPD will not get some of the staff they've requested. To address long 911 wait times, Chief Smith suggested adding 21 new police dispatchers who can take calls. The added positions would cost $1.07 million. The FY 2018-2019 budget, however, only adds 8 new dispatchers.
