THE IDEA WAS YOURS.
Constructing a Regional Law Enforcement Memorial Garden is an outgrowth of citizen input, and a burning desire to honor the memory of all law enforcement officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Federal, state and local officers and agents work closely together in the Kansas City Metropolitan area to keep our families safe.
To me, it made sense to have one memorial to honor the sacrifice and courage of those killed in the line of duty.
But we want to do even more.
We want to tell the stories behind the badge. Our fallen left behind wives, husbands, sons and daughters. Their families will never forget what their own personal heroes have given in the line of duty, and in service to their community.
We should not forget either.
As the wife of a police officer, I have a personal connection to the selfless job our law enforcement officers do. We have such a generous community in Kansas City, and I hope you partner with us on this endeavor to forever remember some of the most honorable men and women in our city.
