    Updated On: Apr 13, 2017

    In 2008 William H. Dunn, Sr., Chairman Emeritus of JE Dunn Construction, contacted the Crime Commission regarding the idea of an offender re-entry program. Studies show approximately 50% of released offenders return to prison within three years of release.

    The Second Chance Program is a coordinating force to advocate for effective prisoner re-entry, providing fundraising for local programs, conducting research, task forces and focus groups, and performing special projects. The Second Chance Board of Directors consists of individuals dedicated to the vision of released offenders making a seamless transition back into the community and receiving the second chance they so desire.

    With the success of the Second Chance Program citizens can look forward to a reduction in crime as offenders who take advantage of the increased opportunities presented after their release will not be the ones contributing to our crime rates.

    The scope of the Crime Commission has broadened over the years, becoming involved with justice and law enforcement issues and neighborhood initiatives on both sides of the state line. In 1997 the organization officially changed its name to the Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission to more accurately reflect its area-wide mission.
