Peabody hires new officer
Peabody soon will have a new police officer patrolling its streets, but residents will have to wait two more months to meet him.
The police department recently hired Leonard Lovely III to be a new full-time officer. Lovely will come to Peabody after serving as a part-time deputy in Decatur County.
He will finish training in November at Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center in Yoder, and is expected to start in mid-January as a Peabody officer.
