Topeka Police Cpl. Jason Harwood was shot dead during a traffic stop this week. He was a 15 year decorated veteran of the force. His murderer and another person in the car have been charged and are in jail. He was born in 1974, he was 40 years of age. He is survived by his wife, two sons, and more family. Also his K9 partner Magnum. His death is particularly difficult on the department as they lost two officers by gunshot two years ago answering a call investigating narcotics in vehicles in a grocery store parking lot. The community and representatives from KS law enforcement agencies attended his large funeral today. Topeka is the state capital, where I served as a deputy sheriff for 30 years.
