Pat McInerney Interviewed about Violent Crime in Kansas City

Spencer Fane Partner Pat McInerney, a former president of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners, was recently interviewed on KCUR radio’s Up To Date show about the problem of violent crime in Kansas City. In the interview, which included Jeff Simon, also a former president of the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners, Pat discussed the critical need for any solution to involve community engagement and trust within the community. Both McInerney and Simon agreed that violent crime is much more than just a police problem, and needs a comprehensive approach.

The interview was also featured in the Kansas City Star’s Sunday editorial, titled “Here’s how you can help tackle Kansas City’s violent crime problem.” You can listen to the interview here, and read the Star’s editorial here.

Pat is a partner in the Spencer Fane White Collar and Government Investigations practice group.

As a former state and federal prosecutor, last with the Organized Crime Strike Force Unit of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri, Pat’s background prosecuting organized crime and public corruption give him a unique understanding of investigative and prosecution priorities, and allow him to counsel individuals and companies facing federal criminal or civil investigation.
