Jason Foxworthy named Kona “Officer of the Month”
The Kona Crime Prevention Committee recognized Officer Jason Foxworthy as “Officer of the Month” for June in a luncheon ceremony Wednesday at Huggo’s restaurant in Kailua-Kona.
Foxworthy was honored for his efforts in a burglary investigation.
On March 15, Foxworthy responded to an alarm at a Kailua-Kona business, according to the Hawaii Police Department. He found the front door to the business forced open and the interior in disarray. He initiated a burglary investigation and recovered video surveillance of a man breaking into the building and rummaging through office drawers. Foxworthy was able to identify the suspect and arrest him the next day.
In addition to this investigation in March, Foxworthy investigated 41 incidents, three traffic accidents and 39 miscellaneous public complaints. He made 19 adult arrests and issued 31 traffic citations.
Foxworthy, a five-year veteran of the department, has received extensive training as a certified drug recognition expert. Between March 2013 and March 2014, he conducted 42 drug recognition evaluations on suspects arrested for driving under the influence of an intoxicant, according to police.
As “Officer of the Month,” Foxworthy is eligible to become “Officer of the Year.”
The Kona Crime Prevention Committee is an organization that encourages community involvement in aiding and supporting police in West Hawaii.
