CHIEF KEN HONICK
Proudly serving as the Elizabeth Township Chief of Police since September 2021.
CHIEF HONICK'S BACKGROUND
Experienced in Private, Local, and Federal Law Enforcement, Chief Honick embarked on his law enforcement career in 1998 working for a local entertainment company supervising security and park police services in Ligonier, PA. In 2000, Honick became a full-time campus police officer for a large medical complex campus in Monroeville, PA. In 2002 Honick entered into Washington, DC Law Enforcement and began a journey with the Metropolitan Police, Metro Transit Police, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

I believe in transparency and feel it is my duty to notify residents of certain police related events within both communities we serve - Elizabeth Township and Forward Township.
As such, I update our Police Department's Facebook page often, making our Facebook the best place for the most up-to-date information on road closures, public safety announcements, and community highlights. Please check back often for accurate, real time information.
