It’s legal to walk around naked in Topeka

Last week, pictures surfaced online of a naked man walking the streets of Topeka, Kansas. According to Topeka Police and the Shawnee County Sheriff’s department that activity is legal.

When a family tried to call police on the naked man walking down the street, the police said there was nothing they could do because there is no ordinance. Now one city council woman is trying to establish an ordinance.

“What I’m trying to do is create a tool that way T.P.D. or any sort of emergency tech is able to assess somebody,” says councilwoman Michelle De La Isla.  “We want to make sure this doesn’t happen in a school because nobody wants their kids to be exposed to naked people.”
