2022 Evidence Tampering
The department reopened the investigation into an old homicide case and discovered that evidence was missing.
During the investigation, it was determined that Birney took evidence from multiple investigations to his personal storage unit.
On May 11, 2023, the Kansas Commission on Peace Officers' Standards and Training (POST) revoked Birney's law enforcement certification for tampering with evidence, failing to cooperate in their investigation, and a lack of good moral character.
