The Fort Worth Police Department’s Officer Mike Kuzenka received the Leading the Way Award at the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition’s Annual Awards & Appreciation Luncheon Dec. 10. The event recognizes contributions and efforts toward ending homelessness in Tarrant and Parker counties.
Kuzenka won the accolade for his homeless services work.
Kuzenka has been with the FWPD for 18 years. He has taken on several positions with the department as a patrol officer, Special Response Team member, neighborhood police officer, and now his current position as the homelessness and community relations liaison officer. In this role, Kuzenka is involved with the homeless and senior communities and underprivileged youth.
He takes the time not only to serve on many committees that impact homeless services but also to be present in the community through building relationships and tearing down barriers that help so many.
