[...] that same analysis found the homicide rate in 481,400-resident Kansas City is higher than the national rate — typical of big cities with large concentrations of people and economic deprivation — but is also decreasing at a slower rate than the rest of the country.The Justice Department announced in June that it will help local authorities in a dozen U.S. cities, including Kansas City, study crime patterns and create specially tailored plans to reduce gang and gun violence.A citizens task force in April closed out more than a year of study of Kansas City's violence with a sweeping blueprint of how to tackle it, from defter coordination of youth and community services to enlisting civic and business leaders to mentor youths.[...] little since has been done, including what James said last month remained the top priority: hiring a full-time staffer to coordinate local violence-prevention efforts and forge coalitions among advocates, law enforcers, researchers and activists.Labeling St. Louis the nation's most dangerous city, Greitens — a former Navy SEAL — has commissioned a special Missouri State Highway Patrol unit to target violent felons on that city's freeways.The crackdown also involves collecting better intelligence to aid local police and stop drug trafficking.Since four men separately were slain in still-unsolved shootings since last August on the city's Blue River trail and the Indian Creek near his south Kansas City home, 74-year-old, semi-retired dentist John Kiesendahl has shunned that path, calling the unresolved bloodshed "scary."
