2018 Death of John Albers
On January 20, 2018, a friend called police to check on the 17-year-old Albers, who they thought might be intoxicated and suicidal. After officers arrived, a car exited from the garage, towards officers. Jenison shot, striking Albers.
The Johnson County Officer Involved Shooting Investigation Team (OISIT) was put in charge of conducting the investigation.
Jenison was placed on administrative leave.
On February 20, 2018, the District Attorney announced that they would not file criminal charges against Jenison.
On February 20, 2018, the D.A. also announced Jenison had resigned from the department. Later reports showed that he received a $70,000 severance payment.
In April 2018, a civil lawsuit was filed against Jenison and the department.
On January 14, 2019, the civil case was settled for $2.3 million.
On September 24, 2020, the FBI opened a civil rights investigation into the shooting.
On April 26, 2021, the City of Overland Park released the OISIT report, including photos and videos.
On September 9, 2022, federal prosecutors announced that they would not file criminal civil rights charges against Jenison in the case due to "insufficient evidence to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer willfully committed a violation of the federal criminal civil rights statute".
