The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is investigating the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, a sheriff’s spokesman confirmed Monday.
KBI agents came to the sheriff’s office Thursday and informed the office of the investigation, said Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy Jerrod Fredricks. However, he could not comment on the nature of the investigation.
Calls to KBI representatives and the Franklin County attorney were not returned Monday.
Fredricks said no employees have been suspended and that the office is “cooperating fully with the investigation.”
While Fredricks wasn’t able to provide further information about the investigation, he said he believes the investigation will show no wrongdoing by the sheriff’s office.
Franklin County Sheriff Jeffry Curry was appointed sheriff in 2010 and is running unopposed in the November general election.
