On Sept. 4, KMUW aired a story about policing in Sedgwick County. We took a look at military equipment acquired through the federal government's 1033 program, including a newly acquired armored vehicle. The following story also focuses on policing in Wichita. 

A public meeting was held last week called “No Ferguson Here.” It was in response to the events in Ferguson, Mo, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by police. City officials in Wichita met with citizens to discuss the relationships between area police and the people they serve.

The second-ranked Wichita State Shockers continued their winning streak Saturday with a 31-0 record, beating Missouri State. The men made history last week, by becoming the first and only college basketball team to finish 30-0 in a regular season, the same night they clinched the Missouri Valley Conference title. Sports analysts say the undefeated ball players have a genuine sense of brotherhood.
