The Kansas Narcotics Officers Association (KNOA) was founded during the latter part of 1992. Since that time, KNOA has increased to over 290 members strong.

The goals of our organization are;

  • To educate the membership and public of the dangers of narcotic and drug abuse
  • To benefit the public interest in the area of narcotic and drug enforcement
  • To promote and foster mutual cooperation between narcotic enforcement officers, their agencies, private industries, and the public sector
  • To provide an avenue for the exchange of ideas and new techniques used by criminals and investigators
  • To take notice of new trends in narcotic and drug abuse
  • To keep the membership informed of new statutes, statute changes, and judicial decisions
  • To recommend, if necessary, correct legislation that the association considers to be in the best interest of the public in the area of narcotic and drug abuse
  • To provide narcotic investigative training to members and peace officers of the State of Kansas.



Due to the overwhelming response for the 2017 KNOA conference in Manhattan, KS,  we have depleted our allotment of rooms at the Four Points by Sheraton (location of the conference).  Parkwood Inn and Suites has been contracted to accommodate the overflow and is working with KNOA to provide a shuttle service to and from the conference site.  Parkwood Inn and Suites is approximately one mile from the Four Points by Sheraton off of Fort Riley Blvd.

If you are in need of a room please contact Parkwood Inn and Suites for reservations.  Be sure and tell them you are with KNOA so that you can get the group rate.  They have also pushed the cut-off date for reservations to February 24, 2017, but please make your reservations as soon as possible!
