Greenwood Police Officer’s Uniform Stolen

Greenwood Police Officer’s Uniform Stolen

August 23, 2014

A Greenwood police officer’s car was broken into Sunday night, August 17, and several department-issued items were stolen, including the officer’s uniform, gun and baton.

While the majority of the stolen items were later recovered Monday morning, part of the officer’s uniform is still missing.

“All items have been recovered except one short-sleeve uniform shirt with sleeve patches sewn on, and one pair of dark colored pants,” Greenwood Police Chief Greg Hallgrimson said.

The officer’s car was parked on Linwood Boulevard in Kansas City, Missouri, the evening it was robbed. Hallgrimson reported that the window of the vehicle was broken, but that the car was locked. According to the department’s policy, all issued equipment and weapons must be secured by lock.

“His vehicle was locked and this meets policy requirement,” Hallgrimson said.

In the future, however, Hallgrimson says that a new directive or a change in policy might be implemented to better protect officers’ issued equipment.

As for now, there are no leads reported on who the suspect might be or where the missing uniform could be located.

Should anyone in the area encounter someone in a police uniform who they suspect is impersonating an officer, they should ask to see their badge for confirmation.
