“The Protector” monument was installed in Hutchinson, KS at the KLETC police academy on July 27, 2017. Officers in training and veteran officers are trained here for many different reasons. The purpose of this particular monument was to remind the community and America that an officers sole purpose is to serve and protect. It honors our past, present, and future Kansas peace officers.
“The Protector” conveys a strong, powerful and lasting image of those men and women whose selfless honor, commitment, and dedication protect our rights and freedoms. In doing so, those men and women have been in harm’s way while still continuing to serve and protect the citizens of Kansas.
