The Camden Police Department (CPD) presented its highest honor, the 2015 Chief’s Award, to Rev. Marion O. Bennett, pastor of Lugoff’s Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church, during its annual spousal appreciation and awards banquet Feb. 15. CPD Chief Joe Floyd chose Bennett to speak to the department’s law enforcement couples during the banquet, but had a “little something up his sleeve” in presenting the Chief’s Award to Bennett. Floyd said he recognized long ago the importance of honoring those who strive to work with and honor the office of police chief as “in truth, we are public servant who cannot prevent crime nor work to bring justice and healing to crime victims alone.”
