KU police switch from sedans to SUVs; student designs new logo for patrol vehicles

Depending on the version of Explorer, some (the Interceptor, in particular) are built to keep the vehicle stable when rounding corners in a pursuit.

This is KUPD, so it is unlikely that they'll be going very fast with the vehicles in their traditional patrol duties.

How and when to dispose of your drugs — responsibly

The dates go along with the National Take-Back day, sponsored by DEA. The next one should be in September, though keep an eye on the news or Sheriff's Office website for info.

City once again ready to broach topic of a new police headquarters

One way we could take care of those who wear the badge is to provide them with a facility to supports all of their needs. It is beyond embarrassing to see the conditions inside the ITC (15th/Wakarusa) and the LEC. One should remember that the LEC is shared between District Court, DGSO and LPD. PD doesn't have the whole building, otherwise there wouldn't necessarily be such a great need for a new building. Nobody wants a Taj Mahal- they want a facility that supports their needs, has some room for growth, and provides opportunities for the future.

Dustin Walker gets life in prison for felony murder, aggravated burglary convictions

Wow, shocking to see Douglas County actually give somebody a sentence they deserved! If only this happened more often (DG not giving out a slap on the wrist).
