WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A former Wichita Police Department employee has been charged with theft.

Shauna Dickman made her first court appearance Tuesday. Court documents show that she has been charged with two separate counts of theft that occurred in May 2019 and August 2021.

Dickman was employed by the department from September 18, 2001 to March 9, 2023. 

Chief Joe Sullivan has released the following statement:

We are disappointed in the alleged actions of a former professional staff member in our department. As Chief, I want to emphasize that this behavior is not characteristic of the dedicated professionals who serve our agency and community with honesty and integrity every day.

As a department, we hold each employee to the highest standards of conduct and ethics to maintain trust and uphold values in our agency and community.


Dickman will next appear in court on May 13.
