Published by the League of Kansas Municipalities since 1980, the Uniform Public Offense Code (UPOC) contains approximately 100 public offenses that can be adjudicated in municipal court. While many of the provisions parallel state law, the UPOC also contains offenses that are frequently enforced only within cities. Whether or not your city has incorporated previous editions of the UPOC, the new edition may be adopted by the publication of a single ordinance. A manual explaining the procedures for incorporating the UPOC by reference is included with each order.
