At a regular meeting of the Village of Kensington Board of Trustees on Dec. 15, Lt. Michael Conlon was honored for 25 years of distinguished service to the community.

For his service, Conlon, the village police commander, was presented with a watch by the board of trustees.

“I feel very humbled that they recognized it. All I did was stick around long enough,” Conlon said, adding that the award came as a surprise to him.

Village of Kensington Mayor Susan Lopatkin said the award, presented on behalf of village residents, was fitting because Conlon is a hard working person of honesty and integrity.

“He’s an exceptional person and a wonderful police officer,” said Lopatkin.

Born in Ireland and raised in Queens, Conlon says he still enjoys coming to work as much today as when he began working for the village police 25 years ago.

“Part of the uniqueness of working with this village is the personal touch,” said Conlon, promoted to his current position in April.

The next scheduled meeting of the board is set for Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. in village hall.
