Esther Vantleven started this petition to City of Wichita

There are many activists and groups presenting their case to the city council and the officials of Wichita next week. They are requesting that the city defund the Wichita Police Department. In their demands of defunding our local department, they are requesting a drop in salary for all Officers. They are requesting no new hires to our department and that we lower the number of Officers we have on our streets.

The Wichita Police Department continues to work in finding solutions to aid in the recent public unrest. They are working and collaborating on issues like resolving racial injustice within our department. They are working on expanding training for officers when it comes to serving citizens with mental health issues, drug dependency, and homelessness. While not only offering training, they continue to put efforts towards developing programs and resources to aid in assisting those in need. We need to speak out and let our city know that we are against them lowering the budget for the Wichita Police Department. 

The men and women that serve on the Wichita Police Department need our support now more than ever. We need to show them that the citizens of Wichita support them and everything they do for our community. Please sign this petition in effort to help show our city officials that we stand with and for the Wichita Police Department.
