The state line of KS and MO splits the city and is designated by "state line rd". What happens if I live in a house on the MO side of the street and shoot my wife. MO police show up at my house and I run across the street to the KS side. Can the MO police follow me and arrest me in KS and drag me back to my house -or- would I have to be arrested by KS police and then MO go through the legal process of extraditing me back to MO?

MO police can follow you into KS and pull you over in KS for a moving violation in MO and vice versa. There is a lot of reciprocity. It's not like tag, where you cross a line and are "on goal."

Lol. Gruesome question, by the way.

Metro area cops generally ignore the state line when trying to apprehend someone. I would say the vast majority of longer car chases end up crossing the state line at least once. Cops in KC work very well together across state and county lines. KCMO also uses their police helicopters on the KS side all the time to assist KS side departments since the KS side doesn't have helicopters.

Johnson County cops tend to be pretty passive when KCMO and KCK chases people into or through their county. KCK cops are the most aggressive, so often when KCMO chases people into KCK, the KCK cops will take them out with more aggressive pit maneuvers etc.

Generally the cops that originated the chase haul the suspects back to their jurisdiction no matter where they end up catching them.

I have spent many shifts doing ride alongs with KC area cops (mostly KCMO). I have done some in DC since moving to this area. It's an eye opening experience that I think everybody should do, especially those that protest against cops or think they have any clue what a cop goes through on a typical shift, especially in a high crime urban area.

Mutual aid. Kansas City-area law enforcement agencies all belong to it. In an urgent matter (like, an active pursuit of a man who just shot his wife), a Missouri LEO can enter Kansas to detain the suspect. But I believe that suspect has to be held where he was arrested until rendition can be approved. So, KCMO can make the arrest, but suspect will go to the JoCoKS jail for example until the paperwork can be completed for transfer back to the original jurisdiction. For minor stuff, LEOs will stop where their jurisdiction ends.

By the way, I always thought Independence police were the most aggressive in chasing suspects. That's been my experience in news coverage, anyway.

Yea, Independence cops get pretty aggressive too. KCMO have a lot more rules I guess. A lot of cities have made it difficult for cops to do much. DC cops can't do anything. They can't even chase you if you take off unless they have a known reason for doing so. When I do ride along in DC, thugs will come up and taunt cops on illegal 4 wheelers and then take off. Nothing cops can do.

You are right about mutual aid, all metros have that. KC is pretty unique with the state line though for sure.

I see you live in Chicago...are you planning to move to KCMO, shoot your wife, and run to Kansas?

Don't even think about running too fast if you're crossing Into Fairway. They'll give you a speeding ticket before they hand you over to KCPD.
