KCKPS Police Department


Established in February 2014, the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools Police Department is a year-round, full-service police department responsible for the safety and security of the District’s students, staff and visitors. Led by Chief Henry Horn, with a command staff of Deputy Chief Michael Webb and two sergeants, the department is comprised of thirty-five full-time sworn law enforcement officers and four security officers.

KCKPS Police Department officers are stationed in all high schools, middle schools and public libraries and respond to incidents at their assigned grade schools as well as other campus locations throughout the District. Officers maintain general safety and security, investigate truancy issues, and work traffic accidents within the Police Department’s jurisdictional boundaries.

In addition to response activities, the Police Department works proactively with school administrators to help carry-out effective fire, tornado and Standard Response Protocol drills throughout the year. Officers receive specialized training in the National Incident Management System and must attend a minimum of 40 hours of professional training annually to maintain their law enforcement certification.
