WATCH: Police Chaplain Arrested in Wichita Prostitution Investigation

WICHITA, Kan. – A volunteer chaplain who works with two local law enforcement agencies has been arrested in connection to a prostitution investigation.

Deputy Chief Jose Salcido with the Wichita Police Department said 53-year-old Daniel Syrcle was arrested late Wednesday morning for purchasing unlawful sexual relations and official misconduct, both misdemeanors.

“Detectives were pursuing an unrelated prostitution case when they discovered Syrcle’s involvement with the prostitution and made the arrest,” Deputy Chief Salcido said.

Syrcle, an unpaid chaplain, worked with both the Wichita Police Department and the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office, Salcido said, but he has since been terminated from his volunteer assignment.

Police provided no additional information, but a booking report shows Syrcle was arrested in the 600 block of South Beverly, near Kellogg and Edgemoor.

Syrcle is also a pastor at First Salem Church at 952 South Hillside, according to the church’s website.
