John Nalbandian, city commissioner and associate professor of public administration and government at KU, was one of five citizens selected from across the state to join the task force.

Community values is one of 17 issues identified by the crime commission as central to a comprehensive examination of crime in Kansas.
The Koch Crime Commission was established by former Gov. Joan Finney in February 1994. Members are appointed to examine crime problems in Kansas, assess crime reduction and crime prevention alternatives and make recommendations for effective action.
