Kan. police chief takes Guatemala job

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A south-central Kansas police chief is leaving his department Sept. 23 for a job in Central America.

Sean Wallace has been with the Arkansas (ar-KAN’-zuhs) City Police Department for 20 years, the last seven as chief.

Wallace told KAKE-TV (http://bit.ly/176KfJ6 ) on Wednesday he has a one-year contract with the U.S. State Department to serve as a community policing adviser in Guatemala. Wallace is a fluent Spanish-speaker and has provided international police training in the past.

His wife, Robin Wallace, is an assistant principal at Derby High School and will remain with the district for the next academic year. Sean Wallace says he’ll decide after his one-year State Department contract is up whether he’ll continue working in Guatemala.
