Kansas City police increase security for Mayor Sly James
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Kansas City police have increased security for Mayor Sly James after he received a threat through his campaign website.
KSHB-TV in Kansas City reports James received death threats and police were stationed outside his home.
Chief Forte with the Kansas City Police Department told KSHB-TV "I've always been a proponent of our high profile mayor having a security detail."
A police spokesman described the security increase as a "precaution" in an email to The Kansas City Star on Monday. Police said detectives were investigating.
