The Kona Crime Prevention Committee named Officer Marco Segobia as “Officer of the Year” during an awards ceremony attended by family and friends in Kona on Sept. 27, 2017.

Segobia was selected from a group of eleven police officers who were previously honored as Officers of the Month. Chief Paul K. Ferreira praised and congratulated the group of officers during the luncheon, recognizing them for their unique contributions to the department and community.

“All of you are prime examples of fulfilling the mission of our department to work cooperatively with the community to enforce the laws, preserve peace and provide a safe environment,” Chief Ferreira said.

Segobia participated in an investigation that resulted in the bust of a major drug trafficking operation. Due to his perseverance, police recovered a significant amount of narcotics and arrested the individuals responsible for importing and distributing them.

According to fellow officers, Segobia is motivated, proactive, has a high energy level, and is a pleasure to work with.
