Running a big-city police force requires the instincts of a beat cop, the administrative talent of a CEO, and the public relations skills of a seasoned politician.

Four former chiefs of the Kansas City Police Department – Joseph D. McNamara, James D. Corwin, Floyd Bartch, and Richard D. Easley – and current chief Darryl Forte talk about the force, its history, and the very demanding job they all shared.

This Missouri Valley Special Collections program complements the original exhibit Kansas City’s Finest, currently on display at the Central Library.
