The Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club, at its October 31, 2017 luncheon, recognized this year’s Public Safety professional from the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Department.
Annually the Club recognizes an outstanding public safety professional from the Sheriff Department.  This Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club program demonstrates and shows appreciation to the individuals who do so much to protect our community.  The leadership of the Sheriff’s Department selects an outstanding individual from their department to receive this award, recognizing the individual’s dedication and service to our community.
We would like to extend our gratitude to Detective Michael Simmons.  He is a prime example of the great men and women of the Sheriff’s Department who are protecting us every day.  Officer Moore, who has been with the department since 2008, was introduced by Sheriff Don Ash.  He shared that he has known Detective Simmons since coaching him in little league.  In addition to his other duties, the detective has been working with the U.S. Marshall’s Service on a joint task force.  Michael’s wife and several co-workers accompanied him and Sheriff Ash at the award presentation.
