     WORD FROM THE CHAIRMAN

    60th Anniversary 1960 - 2020

    I hope that our members, colleagues, families, and friends continue to stay healthy and safe.  It feels that we are now in a new normal, things are opening up but with new protocols.  GSX+ took place completely online, schools have opened in-person, virtually and hybrid, and businesses are learning how to operate in this new environment.  Even our beloved Royals and Chiefs have taken the field, with minimum fans in the seats. 

    This month we had the opportunity to honor and present the Clarence M. Kelley Award to Chief Thomas Hongslo, Lenexa, KS Police Department.  Bill Carroll, Chapter Vice-Chair presented the award with Kansas City Crime Commission President, Rick Armstrong.  The presentation was recorded and presented at the Crime Commission virtual annual luncheon ceremony.

    The chapter was honored at the recent GSX+ with the Best Website Award, and was runner-up for Best Newsletter Award. This year has been challenging, but we have continued to persevere to be the best chapter possible.  The chapter board looks forward to the time when we can all meet again in person, sometime in mid-2021.  We will continue to plan and host informative events and find ways where we can socialize virtually. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing everyone at our next virtual event.  

    Best Regards,

    Rick Dunn, CPP

      CHAPTER PAST EVENTS                       

    AUGUST

    The Greater Kansas City ASIS Chapter held the 2020 Award Ceremony at the World War I Museum and Memorial. Parkville Police Chief Chrisman and Chapter Chair Rick Dunn presented the following Awards.

    Security Officer of the Year: Danny Calsing

    Security Professionals of the Year: Britney Hommertzheim and Darwin Dupree
    Thomas R. Meyers Award: Officer Ryan Kaighen

    SEPTEMBER

    Julia Pearson, Manager of Security operations, Security Infrastructure, and Physical Access Management was the guest speaker for the September Chapter meeting.  She reviewed and shared how American Family Insurance (AFI) developed its own in-house Threat, Vulnerability, and Risk Assessment (TVRA) program. She explained the pros and cons of formulating and conducing an in-house program vs. hiring an external 3rd party vendor (security consultant) to conduct the assessments.

      NEWS FROM CHAPTER COMMITTEES                       

    A major chapter function that we will commence with the October Luncheon is opening the election for the 2021 board. Most of the 2020 board would like to continue our tenure on the chapter board. Due to work commitments, Sean Burns is stepping down as Chapter Secretary, and Jared Oakden would like to transition to that position.  If anyone is interested in the open Chapter Treasurer position or would like to run for Chapter Chair, Vice-Chair, or Secretary please send an email to chairman@kcasis.org.  We will put your name on the ballot, and open the online voting 15 October.

     WORD FROM THE CHAIRMAN

    60th Anniversary 1960 - 2020

    I hope that our members, colleagues, families, and friends continue to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times. Just when you thought things couldn't get stranger, June happened. We have finished our fourth month dealing with COVID-19 in Kansas City, and the new normal is starting to settle in. It feels like a life time ago that we had our last in person chapter luncheon, hopefully in August we will be able to have an in-person event.  2020 is half way over, but the Chapter is still striving to provide engaging topics and events. The board and I appreciate everyone's patience and support as we continue to find novel ways to provide quality presentations and events for the chapter. 

    The Greater Kansas City Chapter is not the only organization to be affected by the Corona virus. GSX is transitioning to a virtual-only environment for its 2020 event, GSX+ is a fully virtual experience that includes CPE-eligible education sessions, a robust Marketplace (virtual exhibit hall), and peer-to-peer networking. View the GSX+ Schedule At-a-Glance.  .

    In support of Officer Mike Mosher's family, please consider making a donation in memory of Officer Mosher please, memorial page.

    Again, I'm truly honored and humbled to be the 2020 Chapter Chair for this great organization. If you have any questions or recommendations please contact me at chairman@kcasis.org.

    Best Regards,

    Rick Dunn, CPP

    I hope that our members, colleagues, families, and friends continue to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times. We have finished our third month
    dealing with COVID-19 in Kansas City.  It feels like a life time ago that we
    had our last in person chapter luncheon.  The board and I appreciate
    everyone's patience and support as we continue to find novel ways to
    provide quality presentations and events for the chapter. 

    Sadly, we have had a loss to our Greater Kansas City Law Enforcement family.  Officer Mike Mosher, with the Overland Park Police Department, was killed while investigating a hit-and-run incident he witnessed while on the way to work.  For those who would like to make a donation in memory of Officer Mosher
    please visit the chapter's

    On behalf of ASIS International Greater Kansas City Chapter we were sadden to learn about Officer Mike Mosher passing.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Mosher's family at this time.

    MICHAEL S. MOSHER


    Police Officer Mike Mosher was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a hit-and-run suspect.

    Officer Mosher was off duty, but in his uniform while en route to work, when he witnessed the hit-and-run at West 143rd Street and Antioch Road. He called dispatchers as he followed the vehicle until it stopped near the intersection of West 123rd Street and Mackey Street.

    The driver confronted Officer Mosher with a firearm, leading to a shootout. Officer Mosher and the subject were both killed in the shooting.

    Officer Mosher had served with the Overland Park Police Department for 14-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife and child.

    To attend Officer Mike Mosher's Memorial Services find the dates and times located here.

    Those who would like to make a donation in memory of Officer Mosher can do so on the Overland Park Police Officers Foundation website.

    You can donate to Overland Park Police Officer's Foundation support for Police Officer Mike Mosher's Family.

    You also can buy a shirt and 100% of the net profits will be donated in memory of Officer Michael Mosher to benefit Officer Mosher’s family.

    Chapter Historian –

    • Attached is the newsletter from ten years ago, March 2000.  There is a lot of interesting information and fun to see how things have changed.  One item of note is, “The chapter debated and passed a resolution establishing a benevolence fund.  The fund provides a $1,000 grant to Private Security Officers’ families in the event they are killed in the line of duty.  The fund will be placed in a interest bearing account and will be replenished to the $1,000 level by the chapter, if necessary.” Does anyone remember this fund or have more information about it?

    A new feature that we are incoorporating this year is corporate sponsorship of the chapter website.  Advertising on KCASIS.org  provides your organization with an excellent marketing opportunity that enables you to reach a well defined demographic of security professionals. As a Chapter sponsor your company logo will be prominently displayed on a revolving  banner located at the bottom of the KCASIS.org home page. A click through on your company logo opens a page to your company’s URL that you define.  See FULL details by clicking on the link: Website Sponsorship<
