KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City law enforcement officials are considering improved security for the city’s County Club Plaza entertainment district.

The effort comes after several young people created disturbances Saturday night at the Plaza, the latest in a series of such events in recent years.

Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté will meet with his top commanders Tuesday to discuss the security plan.

The Kansas City Star reports the plan could include undercover officers patrolling the streets and possibly a detention room to take young people who are causing trouble until their parents or guardians pick them up.

Forte said Monday the trouble-making youths will “no longer be tolerated.” But he says the long-term solution has to involve more than police, including parents and efforts to offer young people more activities.
