Lawrence police used Tasers 6 times in last 17 months, twice in violation of departmental policy

Luckily you don't have to guess when LJW fails to report both sides of the story... :)

Lawrence police blotter for June 11

Civil Stand-by is used for when somebody needs an authority figure to keep the peace while doing a child exchange, picking up property, etc. Very common.

Lawrence city manager says taxpayers are overpaying for some services

Still not enough space, plus that wouldn't solve the issue of the dept. being spread across multiple locations. There's no way the county building can be modified for all of the uses the dept. requires.

Lawrence city manager says taxpayers are overpaying for some services

You keep saying the city should sell the ITC, but I've yet to see a single recommendation from you as far as what should happen to the Investigations, Training, Admin and other staff based out there. Should they setup a bunch of trailers in South Park to allow these folks to be closer to Patrol and others at the LEC?

Here's what should happen. The City should begin construction on the new facility at Congressional/Overland Drive. Once that facility is 100% operational and patrol, etc., have moved in, they can then evaluate how much space is remaining in phase one to allow some groups from the ITC to move into the new building.

In terms of $15 million to upgrade the ITC, the simple fact is no, it is not viable. There is simply no space to expand the building and provide a functioning police station out of it. There's barely enough parking as it is, let alone usable space in that area.

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.

It is indeed up to date. There is a drop box to the right of the elevators and is accessible to anybody from 8a-5pm, M-F.
