About Us

The Wichita Crime Commission was founded in 1952 to create a non-partisan organization to fight the entrenchment of organized crime in our community. As community needs have evolved, we have responded to those needs.

In 2019 we changed the name to Wichita Metro Crime Commission to more accurately reflect the communities we serve. Our goals have also evolved.

Through these initiatives we strive to make a positive impact in our community by creating meaningful experiences and fostering positive choices.
