KCK police chief says he’s under investigation for allegedly ‘double dipping’

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- KCK Police Chief Terry Zeigler says he's being investigated by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.

In a letter to his department, which FOX4 obtained Monday, Zeigler says he learned about a week ago that KBI is conducting a criminal investigation on some of his alleged actions.

The state agency is determining whether the police chief "double dipped" when he took time off to work on a local lake house and received credit from the Unified Government for the work, the letter says.

"I don't want you all hearing this from someone else and I would like to prevent rumors," the chief said in the letter.

A spokesperson for KBI said on Feb. 14, Wyandotte County District Attorney Dupree requested an investigation into the allegations. KBI initiated the investigation on Feb. 22, and the investigation is still ongoing. The agency did not release any further details.

A spokesperson with Wyandotte County said they are aware of the investigation but have no comment at this time.

FOX4 has also reached out to Dupree, Zeigler and KCK Mayor David Alvey for comment but have not heard back at this time.
