Hundreds gathered at the Kansas Statehouse today (FRI) to remember law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, including Topeka Police Corporal Jason Harwood. He was shot and killed during a traffic stop in the capital city last year. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt referenced some recent high-profile cases of alleged police misconduct across the nation. He says the law enforcement community is not defined by the misdeeds of a small number of officers.

“And never may we allow their misbehavior to stain the oath or the uniform or the badge of all who serve so honorably,” says Schmidt.

A memorial outside the Statehouse contains the names of 272 Kansas law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty since the 1860s.
