Sen. Jerry Moran Honors Fallen Officer Jonah Oswald and Other Heroes During National Police Week

By Trish Svoboda

Last week, during National Police Week, Sen. Jerry Moran spoke on the Senate floor to honor Fairway Police Officer Jonah Oswald and all the law enforcement officers who have passed away in the line of duty. Police Week memorializes the 282 uniformed heroes who, during the last year, gave their lives serving their communities.

One of those heroes is Kansas Officer Jonah Oswald. In August of last year, Officer Oswald was fatally shot while responding to another department’s request for help. Officer Oswald was just 29 years old and was a husband and father to two young boys. He served for four years in the Fairway Kansas Police Department.

Whether sheriff’s deputies or detectives, local police, tribal police or highway patrol officers, beat cops or federal agents, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, it’s important to hold up those who wear the badge and honor them every day.
