A message from Chief Brad Halsey:

Officer Tom Wagstaff is still in critical condition. There have been optimistic signs today but he still has a long road ahead. Your prayers for him are still needed.

We want the public to know that although this has been difficult, the men and women of the Independence Police Department have not wavered in protecting and serving this community and accomplishing our police mission. We remain committed to serving with pride. We were strong before this incident and as a result of the amazing support from our community and our amazing IPD family we will no doubt be stronger from this point forward.

Any official updates about Officer Wagstaff’s conditions will come directly from our Facebook page or directly from the Independence Police Department through other means. We will update when we can.
