Colorado Springs officer arrested Friday on suspicion of felony kidnapping.

A Colorado Springs police officer was arrested on Friday on suspicion of kidnapping and child abuse.

Officer Shane Reed, who has been with the department since March of 2018, has been placed on administrative leave, police said in a news release.

On March 9, CSPD detectives became aware of allegations against Reed, the release said. He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree kidnapping, a felony. Reed is also being investigated for three misdemeanors — child abuse, menacing, and harassment.

Reed, a Stetson Hill Division patrol officer, was booked into the El Paso County jail on Friday.

“The Colorado Springs Police Department values the trust placed in our organization by the community, and we are committed to holding officers accountable who violate that trust,” said Interim Chief Adrian Vasquez, in the release. “Today, CSPD Detectives arrested Officer Shane Reed for several serious charges to include one felony charge. While Officer Reed has the same presumption of innocence and due process rights as every person arrested, it is important that the Citizens of Colorado Springs know that their officers will be held accountable when their actions warrant it.”

An investigation is ongoing, police said.
