Police Awards

Each year, the Kansas City Kansas Police Department recognizes commendable and honorable actions taken by officers performed in the line of duty. The Department also recognizes exemplary deeds of citizens of the community for actions taken to assist law enforcement. The Chief of Police presents the awards to citizens and officers during an Awards Ceremony held for the recipients. Families, friends, members of the community, and government officials are invited to attend the ceremony.

 

The award categories are as follows:

  • Citizen's Plaque: This award is for citizens of the community for action taken to assist a Department member that was clearly above that which would normally be expected.
  • Valor Award: Department members who distinguish themselves by conspicuous bravery, heroism, or other outstanding action, and were aware of great personal danger prior to the performance of the action taken. Any Department member whose life is given in the line of duty and circumstances indicate an act of valor was performed will be eligible for the award posthumously.
  • Meritorious Service Award: A Department member who performs an exceptional act; unaware of great personal danger prior to imitating the act, but performs in a commendable manner upon becoming aware of the danger is eligible for this award.
  • Distinguished Service Award: Any member who performs an act, worthy of merit in a commendable manner, such as saving the life of another person, but where no actual danger existed for the officer is eligible for this award.
  • Certificate of Commendation: A Department unit or member who performs an act that distinguishes itself by exceptionally admirable quality service to the department, the community or the member personally, for performance of duty or duties clearly above that which is normally expected, thus bringing credit to the department or community is eligible for this award.
