Capt. Rich Lockhart of the Kansas City, Missouri, police department says officers sometimes use vacant homes for training. No one was at home when they arrived at a home Curtis Allen is fixing up, he adds, and hey, accidents will happen. Allen says police kicked in the door of the home and busted the door jam. Lockhart says he isn't sure what steps police take to, you know, actually get permission to use someone's house for training. But he says if Allen files a claim, the department will investigate it.
