Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says his department is working to address a recent spike in violent crime in Wichita. Wichita has seen seven homicides in the past nine days. During a news conference Monday morning, Chief Ramsay said his staff is working to prevent violent crime. "Prevention is our ultimate goal," Ramsay said. "right after the crime happens we're already too far behind we want to be at that stage where prevention is our focus, not reacting to crime."
A number of complaints force the City of Wichita to put its Old Town traffic enforcement program on hold. Earlier this month, Eyewitness News showed you the room where Wichita police officers would watch nearly 70 cameras in Old Town and radio down to uniformed officers on the street who would stop drivers and ticket them. The Wichita Police Department said the pilot program would help cut down on crime and increase safety.

My name is Akeam Ashford, and I will be joining thousands of Americans in Denver as an elected delegate for Hillary Clinton from Springfield, Mo. I am a junior at Missouri State University where I major in broadcast journalism with a minor in public administration. But I grew up in University City and went to high school at McCluer North. This convention is very important to me because of my time spent in Iraq.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
