Investigation of KCPD Chaplain underway after abuse allegations

 

KANSAS CITY – An investigation is underway as a Kansas City Police Department Chaplain has been accused of abuse.

KCPD issued the following statement:

A KCPD chaplain has been accused of abuse. The Kansas City Missouri Police Department takes accusations of this nature very seriously. We are now reviewing the matter and investigating internally. This chaplain has been part of KCPD’s program for approximately 10 years.

Although chaplains are unpaid volunteers, we acknowledge this chaplain is affiliated with our department. Therefore, any accusations of misconduct are very concerning to us. KCPD chaplains – including the accused – periodically deliver invocations at department events and are available to all department members for spiritual advice and support during various times of need. Our department chaplains do not participate in the criminal justice process or as part of any criminal investigations.

More on this as the story develops.
