Omaha Police Offier Kerrie Orozco was killed on May 20th, 2015 while serving a felony arrest warrant, one day before her premature infant was scheduled to finally come home. Officer Orozco had planned to take time off to look after her.
She left behind a husband, two stepchildren, and her baby.
Deputy Remaeker of the Douglas County (Omaha) Serriff's Department contacted Lodge #99 and requested we inform everyone about Kerrie Orozco Memorial Tac-shoot.
This event is being held to help support the family that Kerrie left behind. 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit her family through the fund at OPFCU.

On April 12th, KCFOP Lodge #99 had our annual 'Day on the Hill' event. Members of the Executive Board and volunteers from the membership of the lodge travel to Jefferson City to meet and speak with our state legislators, addressing proposed legislative changes that might affect our members.
We had a great turnout this year and had the opportunity and good fortune to speak with many of the influential legislators at session.
A special thank you to the non-executive board members who volunteered to attend. We appreciate the support of the membership who help us improve this organization.
Below is a picture of some of the attendees with Missouri District 011 Representative, Galen Higdon.
