The Wall of Honor
In 1999, through the efforts of Emporia Police Chief Bob Rodriquez, then president of KACP, the Association along with donations from several academy classes established the Wall of Honor at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center in Hutchinson. The Wall of Honor is dedicated to those heroic officers who graduated from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center and, in the line of duty, gave the supreme sacrifice. They shall never be forgotten.
KACP continues to support the Wall of Honor as names are added through donations received from the public.
Kansas Law Enforcement Memorial
The KACP commemorates Kansas law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. KACP contributions supported the initial construction of the Kansas Law Enforcement Memorial on the State Capitol grounds in Topeka, and continuing contributions support the Memorial's maintenance.
Concerns for Police Survivors - KS Chapter
Kansas Concerns for Police Survivors (KS COPS) is a state chapter of the Concerns for Police Survivors (COPS) national organization. It is a non-profit program designed to help provide comfort and services for family members of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
KACP contributions to KS COPS help pay for printing, travel and training relative to their services. Additionally, funds help finance special programs designed to provide assistance to Survivors in coping with and adjusting to their loss.

Each year the KACP recognizes and honors officers who have put their lives on the line to protect Kansas citizens or fellow officers and to apprehend dangerous criminals. The KACP pays expenses for award recipients to attend an annual “KACP Awards Banquet” where they are recognized and presented plaques, in front of leaders of the law enforcement community, family, friends, and the news media, for their heroic actions.
Kurt Ford Memorial Survivor Benefit Program
Kurt Ford was the first member in the KACP’s 40 year history to lose his life in a duty-related action. This program was created to memorialize his involvement in, commitment to and love for law enforcement and to help relieve the immediate financial burden to surviving families of KACP members who lose their life in the line of duty. The KACP will pay a $5,000 benefit in such situations.
