Student Spotlight: Anthony R. Honeycutt
Name: Anthony R. Honeycutt
Major: Police Studies
Hometown: Glasgow, Kentucky
What’s your current job?
I am the day shift corporal with the Western Kentucky University Police Department. I also am a police training officer (PTO) for the department, as well as an instructor in O.C., Driving, and D.U.I / SFSTs.
How long have you been in the field?
I have been policing for 16 years.
Why did you choose EKU?
EKU is well-known for its Police Studies program, and the online classes are very convenient for me. I actually re-enrolled at EKU and am now completing a degree I started several years ago.
Why are you getting your degree?
My wife, Michelle, is a deputy jailer with the Barren County Detention Center. We have 3 boys: Derrick (17), John (12), and Joseph (6). She is set to retire around the same time I do, and this degree is an investment in our future. After retiring from policing, my goal is to teach at the collegiate level or at a law enforcement academy.
