An investigation is underway into the Hutchinson Police Department, according to Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder.
The investigation is being conducted by the KBI and possibly the FBI. It comes after “allegations and rumors of preferential treatment.”
According to Schroeder, the investigation also stems from complaints on issues of integrity and trust.
Schroeder said he is not sure if the investigation will reveal any criminal actions, however he wanted to get an outside agency involved.
The investigation was launched in June. It is unclear when the investigation will be finished.
