The public is encouraged to attend the events.
National Police Week is held May 13-19 this year, and National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day is held annually on May 15.
During National Police Week, the Kansas Highway Patrol will be tying blue ribbons to agency-owned vehicles, and is encouraging citizens to do the same to honor fallen officers, as well as their families.
A limited supply of the official COPS ribbons will be available at many Kansas law enforcement agencies, including your local KHP troop headquarters.
If the official COPS ribbons are not available, any 18-inch strip of royal blue ribbon will show your support.
Sergeant Enzbrenner was shot and killed the afternoon of December 9, 2011.
He was assisting code enforcement officers, when his assailant walked up and shot him. The assailant, Skyler Barbee, then shot and killed himself.
Sergeant Enzbrenner was a 24-year veteran of the Atchison Police Department, and is survived by his wife and three daughters.
He was the only Kansas Law Enforcement officer to lose their life in the line of duty in 2011 and one of 173 nationwide.
