Vic Strnad, who started at the Public Safety Office in 1969, worked his last day on Thursday. The department had a reception in his honor Wednesday afternoon. Strnad, 54, made his way through the ranks of the department, beginning as a patrol officer, working his way up to head of detectives and ending his career in charge of patrol. Strnad has been the only polygraph operator in Douglas County since 1984. He plans to use his retirement as an opportunity to “take it easy for a while.” ________ Recognition: KU researchers win grants Kansas University researchers have been awarded nearly $1 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Education.
