The family of a Kansas City police officer who was killed in a car bombing in Afghanistan a year ago is fighting to have his name added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. and the Missouri Law Enforcement Memorial in Jefferson City. Gerald Gibson spent 22 years with the Kansas City Police Department. He went to Afghanistan when he learned of an opportunity to train police officers to take control of that war-town country. Missouri police officers killed in the line of duty are honored by having their names added to the memorials. But Gibson didn’t meet the criteria because he was working for a private military contractor at the time of his death.
