Pair of officers added to BCPD staff
The Baldwin City Council met Tuesday night and discussed upcoming meetings and events, as well as the hiring of two new police officers.
“We had two officers that resigned,” Baldwin City Police Chief Greg Neis said. “We’re just filling spots.”
The officers resigned for relocation purposes. One is returning to serve in Afghanistan while the other is moving closer to Kansas City.
Baldwin City resident Kyle Bulmer will start work with the Baldwin City Police Department Friday. He is a former deputy sheriff and is currently working for the city of Eudora.
Mike Velasquez, an 11-year veteran from Garden City, will start work with the department Sept. 19.
The council was also reminded of the city-wide cleanup tentatively planned for Oct. 1. The cleanup is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be at 1100 Orange Street.
The Baldwin City Council will meet again at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19 at the American Legion.
