KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

City leaders are taking the message of neighborhood safety door to door in Kansas City.

The door-to-door effort comes as police try to solve a series of deadly attacks along a south Kansas City trail.

Nearly half of Kansas City’s 2017 homicides are still unsolved.

That’s why, on Wednesday, city leaders are meeting at the Evangel Church, located at 1414 E 103rd Street, at 6 p.m. to discuss an approach to tackle the problem. They plan to hit the road at 7 p.m. and start knocking on doors.

Police Chief David Zimmerman, Mayor Sly James and City Manager Troy Schulte are among those participating in the efforts.

They plan to offer residents information about block watch programs in an effort to keep each other safe. 

Some who live in the area say they are concerned about the four murders at Indian Creek Trail that remain unsolved.

Wednesday’s event is the first of three planned throughout the city.

The other events plan to visit the Midtown and East Kansas City areas on one trip and the Northland on another. Times and dates for those events have not been set.
