Annual KDOT Law Enforcement Appreciation Lunches

We would like to treat you to lunch as a thank you for all you do for the citizens of Kansas. We also have information to share about this year’s traffic safety programs. There are different training options, see below for information and dates for each option. Please enter the number of attendees you need at each site, and give us the names and contact information from your agency.

Below 100

Co-Sponsored by Iola Police Department, Allen County Sheriff’s Office, Independence Police Department and Pittsburg Police Department. The training’s focus is on each and every officer, trainer and supervisor taking individual and collective responsibility for the decisions and actions that contribute to safety. For those in a leadership position, this means promoting a culture of safety throughout the department. Just as importantly, we need to hold accountable those who stray outside what should be common sense. The last time the number of line-of-duty deaths was below 100 was 1943. Although the number of deaths is significantly lower than it was in the 1970s, line-of-duty deaths attributable to accidents and/or preventable events have remained unacceptably high.
The Tenants: Wear your belt. Wear your vest. Watch your speed. WIN!-What’s Important Now? Remember: Complacency Kills! These five tenants are actionable items under our own control, which if implemented by each one of us, will save our own lives.

Ignition Interlock and DUI Updates

This will cover the laws needed to properly enforce the law for those who are required to have an ignition interlock installed. DUI Law Updates will also be given by the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor, Corey Kenney. 

Emerging Issues in Traffic Enforcement Safety

This training will be given by Bill Sullivan, Law Enforcement Liaison for Region 7. The course will include discussions on current challenges in traffic enforcement, why we do traffic enforcement, effective ways to conduct traffic enforcement, and officer safety and liability issues.

Stopping Trucks

This year we are wanting to provide some training about traffic and trucks. We are not in any way trying to ask LEOs to become truck inspectors as that is KHP's specialty. What we are providing are some insights to general enforcement and what an officer is seeing or can/cannot enforce concerning trucks. We will also discuss the criminal element, as we all know they are out there, and they all drive vehicles.
