COMBAT Canvasses Neighborhood Urging Residents To Report Crime

COMBAT volunteers places door hanger that highlights crime hotline phone number

DeQuai Wilson of Independence had good reason to don a red Jackson County COMBAT T-shirt and take part in its anti-crime canvassing effort in the Ruskin area of south Kansas City on Thursday.

"I lived in this area, and my son, Cortez Wilson, who was a 17-year-old senior at Ruskin High School, was murdered on January 2, 2010," she said. The crime remains unsolved.

"So this cuts close to home for me," said Wilson.

Since her son's murder, Wilson has gotten involved with the Ad Hoc Group Against Crime’s Mothers and Families for Healing and Justice group. Ad Hoc is one of many anti-crime organizations that receive funding from COMBAT, Jackson County’s Community-Backed Anti-Drug Tax.
