A coalition of Kansas City faith organizations is asking for the removal of Overland Park Police Chief Frank Donchez, calling some of his actions “bad policing” which have misled the public, especially in regards to ongoing revelations involving the 2018 shooting death of teenager John Albers.

Representatives of More2, or More Squared, held a press conference in front of Overland Park City Hall Monday to say that public trust has been broken by the Overland Park Police Department’s statements following the shooting and by the news of a severance payment to Clayton Jenison, the officer who killed John Albers.
