KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) -- President Donald Trump is coming back to Kansas City to speak at the Project Safe Neighborhoods National Conference, according to the Kansas City Star.

The newspaper reports the President will speak to hundreds of officers this Friday.

The weekend-long conference is hosted by the Dept. of Justice as part of its Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative, which targets violent crime, primarily focusing on criminal gang activity and felonious use of firearms.

The Star says it is the eighth time President Trump visited Missouri, many of the trips in support of Senator-elect Josh Hawley's successful campaign against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. He also visited Topeka in August for a rally backing Sec. of State Kris Kobach in his bid for governor and Representative-elect Steve Watkins.
