Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker issued the following statement today after KCPD announced an investigation of its Crimes Against Children Unit:
“It has been my highest priority to protect our community’s most vulnerable population - children. All those responsible for the welfare of our kids must examine where we come up short. Rest assured, my office will assist police in investigating and submitting these important cases.
“In the end, our community must have absolute confidence that all of us – especially police and prosecutors – are doing everything possible, as quickly as possible, to protect our children from harm. I will stand for nothing less.”
