According to the Kansas City Police Department, a pair of two officers will respond to every call following the deadly shooting in Baton Rouge. 

The change in police response was made to ensure officer safety.

Officials say at least three police officers were killed and three others were injured in an apparent ambush shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Sunday morning. 

The shooting — which happened just before 9 a.m., less than 1 mile from police headquarters — comes amid spiraling tensions across the city — and the country — between the black community and police.
