Effective this weekend, SRO Officer Richard Spandle will be leaving BVNW and officially transferring to a detective position in the Overland Park Police Department’s criminal investigations division. In an email to the BVNW staff, Spandle said the position of Cooperative Disability Investigator was a perfect fit for him at this time, and is something he could see himself doing in a retirement job. 

Spandle said his nine years working as a student resource officer have been the most rewarding of his 22 year career with the OPPD.

“I will cherish these memories for the rest of my life,” Spandle said in the email. “I feel this experience has made me a better person and a better police officer.”
