The Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NOVA) is a community collaboration among several organizations committed to reducing violent crime in the urban core. It is spearheaded by a Governing Board consisting of the following organizations: Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, U.S. Attorney’s Office, City of Kansas City, Missouri, Kansas City Missouri Police Department (KCPD), Missouri Board of Probation and Parole, University of Missouri, Kansas City (UMKC), U.S. Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

KC NoVA focuses on reducing homicides and violent crime in Kansas City by concentrating resources on the most prolific drivers of violent crime, but it also offers services to persons at-risk of being victims or suspects in violent crime. These individuals will be provided with options and resources to make life style changes, while individuals who self-select for enforcement will be enforced upon to the fullest extent of the law.
