Many thanks to Atchison Elks Lodge 647. They donated 75 fans to the Police Department for people who might need them. The Police Department sent 50 of those fans to the Unity in the Community Director Jermaine Wilson to help with similar efforts! Pictured left to right is Sgt. S. Herring, Steve Betts, Leading Knight Larry Breslin, and Sgt. D. Herring!

Our thoughts are with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office. One Deputy shot and killed and another criticall wounded during a prisoner transport. Terrible day.

In 1881 Sheriff Pat Garrett captured the infamous Billy the Kid! 137 years later the Leavenworth PD captured “Billy the Kid” again. Now they need your help! Does anyone recognize this goat? If so please contact Leavenworth Animal Control 913-682-0268!

Throwback Thursday. A facinating piece by the History Detectives about the First Chief of Police in the City of Leavenworth, John T. Taylor. He was the grandson of the 9th President William Henry Harrison and served under the Command of General Sherman during the Civil War.

Congratulations Sgt. Herring!

Congratulations, Detectives!

Press Release On July 11, 2017, Officer Matthew Harrington of the Leavenworth Police Department responded to a report of a stolen automobile at 1708 Rose Street. After an initial review of the events it was determined to be an argument over possession of a family vehicle that resulted from a domestic dispute. Prior to Officer Harrington’s initial arrival, the male half of the dispute, Antonio Garcia, left the residence. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Garcia returned to the residence. Officer Harrington and Mr. Garcia had an encounter in the driveway of the home while Mr. Garcia was in his SUV and at one point Officer Harrington fired his duty weapon which struck and killed Antonio Garcia. The Police Department initiated a Professional Standards Investigation to determine whether Officer Harrington was in compliance with the Department Policy that governs the use of deadly force. That investigation was concluded on Friday, January 19, 2018. I reviewed the contents of that investigation and concluded that Officer Harrington violated that policy. On Friday, January 26, 2018, Officer Matthew Harrington was terminated from the Leavenworth Police Department for the policy violation. Chief Patrick R. Kitchens

I stopped by tonight to say goodbye to a historic part of Leavenworth. I spent plenty of Friday nights at the Wheel Thing Skate Center from 1983-1987. I am certain I had the high score on PAC Man. Congratulations on your retirement guys!
