The Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club, at its December 4, 2018 luncheon, recognized this year’s Public Safety professional from the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department.
Annually the Club recognizes an outstanding public safety professional from the Police 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 Police 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 appreciation to Matt Tomesic.  Matt was introduced by Assistant Police Chief Pamela Waldeck.  Matt is retired from a local police department after 23 years of service.  In conjunction with the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department, he has started a Police Athletic League to provide youth programs in KCK.  The program is renovating the old St. Mary's Church building on 5th Street.  They will be offering boxing, gardening and bee keeping to start, and adding more programs in the future.
