Mar­i­on Police Chief Angela Haley start­ed her career with the Mar­i­on Police Depart­ment as a Dis­patch­er in 1993. One year lat­er, she was hired as a Police Offi­cer. Over the fol­low­ing years, she became cer­ti­fied and assigned as a K‑9 Offi­cer, pro­mot­ed to Cor­po­ral, then Sergeant, then Cap­tain, and even­tu­al­ly appoint­ed as Chief of Police in 2016. Chief Haley now serves her depart­ment and com­mu­ni­ty as a sea­soned leader with exem­plary work eth­ic and character.

Admin­is­tra­tive Assis­tant to the Chief of Police, Stacey Kon­azes­ki, said work­ing along­side Chief Haley is a priv­i­lege. Her ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion for our depart­ment and this city is unmatched. To quote one of my favorites, John Maxwell, A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.’ This per­fect­ly describes Chief Haley in her role as Chief of Police. The city is blessed to have her lead­ing our men and women in uniform.” 

MPD Detec­tive Sergeant Josh Zigler expressed that Chief Haley is very deserv­ing of the Employ­ee Spot­light recog­ni­tion. Chief Haley gen­uine­ly cares about her offi­cers and employ­ees. She puts great empha­sis on serv­ing our com­mu­ni­ty. She is an asset to the police depart­ment as well as to the City of Mar­i­on. Chief Haley has been a leader on this police depart­ment since I start­ed 13 years ago. At the same time, she has been a leader in her community.” 

MPD IDACS Coor­di­na­tor and Records Man­ag­er, Phyl­lis Kauff­man, expressed thanks for Haley’s pos­i­tiv­i­ty in her lead­er­ship. No mat­ter how hard things are or how neg­a­tive the atmos­phere is, she always stays pos­i­tive, has a smile, and offers words of encour­age­ment. She will step in and help wher­ev­er need­ed, nev­er behaves as if a job is below her because she is the Chief, and tru­ly feels her job is to serve the pub­lic, and it shows in her dai­ly actions.” 

May­or Jess Alum­baugh has been grate­ful for her role in lead­ing the Police Depart­ment. I appre­ci­ate the pro­fes­sion­al­ism and ser­vant lead­er­ship Chief Haley pro­vides for the Mar­i­on Police Depart­ment. She leads by exam­ple and does­n’t hes­i­tate to join her offi­cers on the front lines when necessary.”
