KC hopes All-Star police performance is stellar

“There will be plenty of undercover officers, and plenty of federal support,” Leyshock said. “The biggest thing will be to have uniformed officers everywhere. You want a big show of visibility. People should see a police officer on every other corner, if not every corner.”

The prospect of a terrorist attack is a given at all high-profile events, he said, but lessons learned since 9/11 have prepared law enforcement to identify threats and respond accordingly.

“In this era, I think we’re very sensitive to any potential act of terrorism,” the police captain said. “It doesn’t have to be the All-Star game.”
