Kansas Common Sense

As our nation recognizes National Police Week, I want to share with you my tribute to the officers who gave their lives in the line of duty over the last year, including six Kansans.

Click HERE or below to watch the tribute.

Very little about being a law enforcement officer can be described as easy. They work around the clock and under difficult circumstances to keep our communities safe and often without the recognition that they deserve. It’s time to change that. They are American heroes and I join all Kansans in thanking them for their daily sacrifice and tireless work to protect our communities.

As the lead Republican on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee with jurisdiction over the Department of Justice, I am committed to making certain our law enforcement officers have the resources and support they need to do their jobs effectively and safely.

May God bless our law enforcement officers and protect them from harm as they faithfully perform their duties each and every day.

Tonight the officers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty last year will be memorialized at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., including the brave Kansas officers we lost in 2020. Tune in here for the virtual candlelight vigil at 7:00 p.m. to show your support for our law enforcement officers. 

Very truly yours,
