KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Two officers who were part of the mayor's detail have been suspended.

Police officers must apply to be part of the mayor's detail, also called the City's Dignitary Protection Unit. The three-person unit is comprised of two officers and a backup.

Allegations have been made against two of the officers, who are currently suspended pending the outcome of a criminal investigation.

Neither the city nor the police department would comment on the details of the accusations, saying only that it is a personnel matter. They did say that the officers are on paid administrative leave.

Sources have told FOX 4 that the accusations are not a violent crime, or anything that would endanger the public, but rather an issue with recording more hours than they actually worked, or overtime theft.

Mayor Mark Holland did not respond to calls for comment; his office sent an email simply stating, "Due to the pending investigation, the mayor has no comment."
