Overland Park officers swap police gear for lawnmowers to help homeowner


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Someone living in Overland Park caught officers off guard.

The person snapped pictures as officers working this week, but they weren’t on patrol. They traded in police gear for lawnmowers and helped an older homeowner with yard work.

The department said all of the work was completed between service calls the officers received.

Police said the man recently lost his spouse and had fallen a little behind on some outdoor chores. Thanks to the officers, his yard is back up to code.
