Andale is a very small town - about 1000 people, with 2 full time law enforcement officers, 2 part-time, and 1 reserve. One of the part time officers also works full time for the the agency that arrested Bailey and that is investigating the domestic incident, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department.
[I can't imagine. You call the police and the alleged aggressor bounces right back out of jail without even having to pay a bond or bail. Then what?]
I hope this works out and everyone is safe. These really small towns in states that are not usually in national news headlines are just one of the reasons that I believe officer-involved policies should be mandated from a federal level. It will take forever for the tiny towns in rural communities to establish protocol of what to do if, for example, the person who is accused is the chief of police.
