    Monday, I had the opportunity to meet with the KS COPS organization. Also present was AG Schmidt, members from KACP, State FOP representatives , and legislative liaison Ed Klumpp.

    KS COPS is a statewide organization providing programs & services for the surviving families and co-workers of leo killed in the line of duty in KS. They assist in getting families to police week in DC,  have peer support groups, and even have camp for children who have unfortunately been exposed to the horrific tragedy of line of duty death of a parent.

    Take a minute to look at their website www.kscops.org, or their fb page. I challenge each KPOA member to donate their next fancy coffee or lunch out money to this sadly needed wonderful organization.

    I also hope and pray we don't need their programs this year in Kansas.

    Be safe!

    It is with great pleasure the KPOA would like to welcome Grover "Jeff" Piper as the new Administrator replacing the position of Secretary/ Treasurer.

    Jeff is a Detective with the Maize Police Department and  will be a wonderful asset to the KPOA in this old, yet new position. His enthusiasm, and zeal to get things accomplished is evident with the new website.

    Please take a minute to congratulate and welcome Jeff to the KPOA!

    Stay safe,

    Memorial Day weekend  means school is out for the year, graduations are complete and the beginning of summer is upon us. 

    As we celebrate this long weekend, take a moment to remember the U.S. Military women and men who lost their lives while serving their country. Remember the sacrifices they made and their families continue to make.

    Enjoy your weekend whether it be with family, BBQ's or just doing that project you have been putting off. As you do, take a moment and give thanks to ALL who make sacrifices for us.

    Be safe!

    The start of spring is a good time to clean out the old, freshen things and launch a new and improved KPOA website!!

    The new site will allow our members to have access to timely legislative information, upcoming training and the most recent point of law updates.

    Members and agencies will be able to renew and pay for their memberships and sign up for FREE KPOA sponsored training for members on line as well.

    With this new website KPOA hopes to keep you informed and up to date.

    Thank you to ALL who have assisted in making this happen, and continue with valued participation. KPOA is a remarkable organization and thank you for choosing to be a part of it.

    Spring will bring new challenges for us; whether we seize them or not and it will bring new opportunities. As we seize these opportunities and face these challenges know you are truly making a difference in the community you serve.  Your dedication, service, and integrity is invaluable and vital in today’s world.

    The Kansas Peace Officers Association has been a part of the law enforcement community for over 100 years now and I am privileged to be the current president of this worthy organization. The KPOA encompasses all levels of law enforcement including Chiefs, Sheriffs, and street officers, local, state, and federal officers.

    As law enforcement officers, we often face many prejudices and challenges in our daily responsibilities.  It is imperative we continue to educate the public, share our challenges and continue to keep our communities safe. At the same time providing services to those who need a counselor, social worker, protector and so many other roles encompassed by law enforcement officers in today’s world.

    The KPOA strives to provide quality training to its members throughout the state to assist with some of these challenges and roles faced daily. The district Governors have been instrumental in assisting with arranging training and for that, I thank you. I hope 2019 will encourage all districts to provide FREE, quality training to KPOA members throughout the state.

    Thank you to all who attended our fall conference in Lawrence. There were fantastic speakers who shared their experience and knowledge, old friends reuniting and new friends being made. A raffle also occurred at the conference raising $2655.00 for the family of Sedgwick County Deputy, Robert Kunze.  The generosity of the sisters and brothers in blue is awe-inspiring.

    KPOA continues to provide our members with representation at the legislature with retired Chief, Ed Klumpp. Mr. Klumpp works tirelessly during the legislative session working with Kansas lawmakers on proposed bills that could impact law enforcement.

    KPOA is trying to establish an email data base to better communicate with its almost 3300 members.  This will allow us to blast email training information and other information of value in a timely manner.  Please make sure KPOA has your CURRENT email information. If you are a member, please login to this site to ensure we have your current e-mail on file.  While your logged in, please also verify all of your contact and beneficiary information is current.  

    I know you have the choice to belong to other organizations and appreciate you choosing to belong to the KPOA. As your president, I hope to continue to advance and grow this remarkable organization and membership. I cannot do that alone and each member’s active involvement is needed and greatly valued.

    Thank you for your dedicated and crucial service in law enforcement. The work you do is remarkable and does make a difference.

    Stay safe!

    Sherri Moore
