Jenks Police Chief inducted into Marine Corps League
Jenks Police Chief Cameron Arthur, along with Jenks Police Major Arthur Solomon were inducted into the Tulsa Marine Corps League Saturday.
Former Jenks resident Lorne Kasdin, United States Marine Corps Veteran and Marine Corps League member conducted the induction.
Last fall, Arthur was asked if Jenks Police would participate in a fundraiser car wash put on by the Marine Corps League to help raise money to send U.S. Marine Veterans to the annual Marine Corps Ball.
Arthur obliged and sent several Jenks Policemen to the event.
“I said absolutely,” Arthur said. “Anytime service people and heroes want our help, we are going to help. It was a good day. I believe 8-10 Marine Veterans got the chance to go to the Marine Corps Ball because of that fundraiser. It is an honor to be an associate member of such a great team. These guys have served their country and served it proud and anything we can do for them we are going to do.”
Arthur added that he wants the partnership between the Jenks Police Department and Marine Corps League to do great things in the community.
“We are going to participate with them in a lot of upcoming events and help each other out,” Arthur said. “Some more car washes are potential ideas, but we are welcome to citizens’ input if they want to get involved as well. We want to be strong partners in the community. It makes sense to do this together. We look forward to the partnership.”
