Man Accused Of Repeatedly Exposing Himself

Negative publicity and low pay has Kansas law enforcement agencies struggling to recruit new officers at a time when agencies have hundreds of openings but not enough qualified applicants to fill them.
A man is facing four counts of sexual misconduct after prosecutors say he exposed himself and committed lewd acts in public places around town.
The 33-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday in the parking lot of a Kansas City coffee shop. Police say they were conducting surveillance on him because of previous incidents and saw him expose himself.
Court documents indicate the man was in direct view of people inside the coffee shop and at a school across the street.
The man previously had been identified as a suspect in four other incidents reported by women in April and May. One of those was in the same place where he was arrested Wednesday.
The man made his initial court appearance Thursday.
