KCPD launches “Busted” program to help identify suspects

A new program launched by the Kansas City Missouri Police Department allows the public to help identify suspects and close cases.

The new “Busted” program is a page that features suspects who have been caught on camera committing everything from burglaries to shootings.

These pictures and videos had previously only been circulated internally at KCPD, but detectives are sharing them with the public to help identify suspects.

The webpage is located under the “Crime” link at www.kcpd.org and features a list of suspects with photos, a brief description of the incident, and a direct link to the TIPS submission form, which is 100 percent anonymous.

“The goal is to make Kansas City safer,” said Captain Terry Freed, who came up with the Busted program.

All cases are felony-level and eligible for rewards through the TIPS Hotline (816-474-TIPS). Currently, the TIPS reward is up to $25,000.

To learn more about how the TIPS rewards are paid out and how they remain anonymous, listen to the podcast with Kevin Boehm with Crime Stoppers here.
