KCPD Historical Information   Lest We Forget
1974 KCPOA Manual

The original KCPOA Lodge was formed in 1969. The links below may be used to view a 1974 KCPOA Manual and Membership Card courtesy of retired Sergeant James E. Martin. The original KCPOA Lodge was later dissolved.

The History of the first KCPOA, dating from the Lodge's inception in 1969, begins on page #12 of the manual. This manual has been placed within the KCPOA digital archives that our members may remember the struggle of those who have gone before us toward the professionalization of law enforcement in Kansas City through the representation of the officers, detectives, and sergeants of the KCPD.
