Officer Darnell Sims

Back Story

Working in Law Enforcement since 2003 gives our Student Resource Officer a lot of experience in the field, but thats not where his story in Law Enforcement began.

Directly after graduating high school, Sims started his 6 years in the US Marine Corps. After his service he began his career in law enforcement at the Jackson County Department of Corrections, Prairie Village PD, and eventually Lee's Summit PD as a detention officer.

Officer Darnell Sims has been with the Lee's Summit Police Department since 2005 and has recently been assigned to the Juvenile Investigations Unit. Prior to his work with us he was a part of the patrol division, where he also worked as a recruiter.


Current Position

Since joining the Juvenile Investigations Unit he was assigned SRO (or Student Resource Officer) right here at Lee's Summit High School!

Officer Sims is at our school to make sure that our students can learn in a safe environment, provide addition resources to our students, and build positive relations with students, staff, and parents.
