As temperatures rise, police beef up Plaza presence

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

As temperatures rise, the Kansas City Police Department is preparing to prevent additional problems at the Country Club Plaza.

Large groups of youth roaming the Plaza and creating disturbances have made headlines and driven patrons away.

The police department will have officers on standby as well as bike units and officers on horseback.

"We are going to have routine patrol down there as well as plain-clothed officers to monitor the situation and make sure things don't get out of hand," police department Sgt. Marissa Barnes said.

And there will be a low tolerance for trouble makers.

"I don't think there will be zero tolerance but they are not going to get numerous warnings like they have before," Barnes said. "They will be told one time to stop doing whatever they are going or they will be arrested."

The city is opening Brush Creek Community Center for youth on Friday and Saturday nights. Last Saturday night, the center served 125 teens who played games and danced instead of loitering and fighting.
