Kevin Minor
Police Officer
St. Louis County (MO) Police Department


I am honoring my husband, my hero, Police Officer Kevin Minor. In 1991, Kevin answered God’s calling to serve and protect others. He began his career as a patrolman for University City Police Department. In 1995, he was hired by the St. Louis County Police Department, where he continues to serve today. He has served in many roles on the department such as; a tactical operator, field training instructor, recruiter, firearms instructor and now as the Community Engagement Officer.

Kevin is a fierce defender of this noble profession and the brothers and sisters with whom he serves. He considers it an honor to wear the badge and the responsibility with which he has been bestowed. He is a passionate leader in every sense of the word. He is the first one through the door and the last one out. He is a role model and mentor to his fellow officers and the youth in the community. Even though Kevin missed his other calling as a stand-up comedian, with a specialty in impersonations and practical jokes, this talent allows him to bring some levity to those around him. He has a positive attitude about life and tries to bring happiness to all he interacts with.

He has dedicated his life to serving the community, which is evident in his receipt of eighteen letters of Appreciation from private citizens, colonels and chiefs from other police and fire departments. He has been awarded nine Awards of Excellence and ten Chief’s Commendations. He received the Meritorious Service Award for saving an elderly man, during an apartment fire. He has been awarded the CIT Officer Commendation from the St. Louis Area Crisis Intervention Team Coordinating Council and the John McAtee Award from Mental Health America of Eastern Missouri, for which he saved a man from committing suicide.

Not only is Kevin a phenomenal officer but he is truly a wonderful man. He is devoted and loyal to his family and friends, putting them first. He would do anything for his children, nieces and nephew. He is a gentleman and a gentle man. We are blessed to know him, love him and be loved by him.
