It's decision time for Kansas City, Missouri's city council. They'll vote on a 9 p.m. curfew for Kansas City teens. The curfew is a direct response to continued violence on the Country Club Plaza.

There have been growing complaints about large groups of teenagers hanging out on the Plaza. Last Saturday night three teens were shot. None were seriously injured.

On Wednesday, Police Captain Cy Ritter testified to city leaders, saying he has concerns about officers' ability to enforce an city-wide curfew. He said it would also mean slower response times to other, more urgent calls.
Ritter also said there will be as many as 60 officers on the Plaza this weekend to ensure safety.

Some city council members suggest a targeted curfew for certain entertainment districts.

"My rationale right now is a 9 p.m. curfew is probably a little bit too much right now city-wide," said Rev. Michael Brooks. "If it's more targeted areas like the Plaza, like where we've had problems, that may be a more reasonable approach."

Urban League of Greater KC President Gwen Grant spoke on FOX 4's Morning Show and said city council needs to approve the curfew for the safety of the public. FOX 4's Mark Alford discussed the issue in depth with her. Watch the video to hear her concerns.
