Vote for a Local All Star!

Local High Point Police Officer has been nominated to America's Most Wanted All Stars. Please take a moment and vote for Officer Leonard!

Detective Ken Leonard began his public service career in the High Point Police Department as a patrol officer in 1992. He left the department in 2004 to work for a private security firm in Iraq. In December 2005, Leonard was seriously injured when a roadside bomb exploded. Because of the accident, both his feet were amputated. Five months after the accident, Leonard learned to walk with prosthetic feet and crutches. Two months after that, he had gained his balance and had his sights set on a police badge. Ken's undying attitude and his will to serve and return to police work drove him to excel, not accept his medical condition as an excuse. He trained, prepared and took the NC POPAT on two occasions in order to recertify and gain a position back on the High Point Police Department. He is currently a detective working as a gang investigator. The High Point Police Department is really glad to have him back on the force.
