Columbia Police Officers Brandon Crites and Kevin Kasper run at Stephens Lake Park on Tuesday. Crites ended his basketball career early to join the Columbia Police Department in January 2009. "It's always been my goal to become a police officer, but I decided to do this sooner than expected because of the benefits," he said. "If the 20-year retirement plan changes, I will regret this decision."
