Buckner police chief suspended

Buckner police chief suspended
Dereck Sayers, police chief of Buckner (pop. 2,700) for about the past nine months, has been suspended, and city attorney Steve Mauer isn't saying why.
Sayers, who lives in rural eastern Jackson County, confirmed the suspension but wouldn't say anything else.

  • Connected to a March beating at the Red Dawg saloon that left one man in a coma? Nope, officials said.
  • Bucker has been running short of money, cut department staff in 2003 from five to one.
  • Voters rejected property-tax hike for police protection in 2004.
