KBI Investigating Police Department In Halstead

Kansas Bureau of Investigation

Authorities say the Kansas Bureau of Investigation is investigating a matter involving a south-central Kansas police department.

Harvey County Attorney David Yoder says KBI agents visited the Halstead Police Department on Monday. Yoder says he asked for KBI assistance recently after receiving information about the police department that warranted further checking from an outside agency.

Yoder says he can't comment on the nature of the investigation because it's ongoing.

The KBI said in a release Tuesday that it's investigating in and around Halstead, but did not specify the police department. The KBI says no search warrants had been served and there had been no arrests.

A message left with the police department wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.

Halstead has about 2,100 residents and is located about 35 miles north of Wichita.
