WHEREAS, Larry began working for the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department in 1971 as a district officer; and

 

WHEREAS, he was personally acquainted with Clarence M. Kelley, former Chief of Police and Director of the FBI, who served as the example of how an officer of the law should conduct himself; and

 

WHEREAS, Larry had the opportunity to meet and guard Elvis Presley during one of his concerts here regarding it as one of the high points of his career; and

 

WHEREAS, in June of 1979, he received the Red Cross Lifesaving Award for rescuing and saving the life of a young boy from an apartment pool; and

 

WHEREAS, he was a founding member of ACCENT at the Trash Summit at Kaufman Foundation to combat illegal dumping through the Kansas City Crime Commission; and

 

WHEREAS, he received a Meritorious Service Award for his design of the numbering system for the Grandview Triangle which cut response time and officer overlap and writing the book furnished to all emergency and policy safety agencies; and

 

WHEREAS, the opportunity to arbitrate and/or counsel citizens on trouble calls which often led to the resolution of these personal problems was the most satisfying aspect of his career; NOW, THEREFORE,
