Capt. Alex Ken­wor­thy has been serv­ing on the Mar­i­on Police Depart­ment since Decem­ber 16th, 2001. Since being sworn in, he has been going above and beyond the expec­ta­tions of serv­ing as a police offi­cer by being a vital con­nec­tion to com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers while dis­play­ing great char­ac­ter and enthusiasm.

One of many exam­ples: Capt. Ken­wor­thy recent­ly vol­un­teered as part of Mar­i­on Util­i­ties’ Com­mu­ni­ty Day at Mat­ter Park. Their Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Spe­cial­ist, Sher­ry Losh­nowsky, expressed delight for Ken­wor­thy tak­ing time to enter­tain and wel­come fam­i­lies present for the event. We at Mar­i­on Util­i­ties want to thank Mar­i­on PD’s Alex Ken­wor­thy, who took time on his day off to come hang out with the kids at Com­mu­ni­ty Day. Capt. Ken­wor­thy was a huge hit, talk­ing to the kids and adults present, and he did some great PR for the City and Police Depart­ment. Thank you so much!”

Mar­i­on Police Chief Angela Haley echoed thanks for Capt. Kenworthy’s com­mit­ment to the com­mu­ni­ty. Alex is and always has been com­mu­ni­ty-mind­ed. He has a pas­sion for work­ing with kids. He is the epit­o­me of what com­mu­ni­ty polic­ing is all about.”

May­or Jess Alum­baugh shared Chief Haley’s sen­ti­ment. Capt. Ken­wor­thy’s ded­i­ca­tion to his pro­fes­sion and com­pas­sion for this com­mu­ni­ty is tru­ly inspir­ing. He has the abil­i­ty to take any sit­u­a­tion he encoun­ters and turn it into a pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence for those involved. His ded­i­ca­tion to the youth in our com­mu­ni­ty, both on and off the job, has made such an impact on so many who have need­ed the men­tor­ing he provides.”
