He briefly served as acting chief when former Chief Patrick Murphy retired and was appointed Chief of Police by the Town Council on October 13, 2010.
"Ken Antolik is a consummate professional and a model of the community-oriented policing that has come to define our town’s approach to law enforcement," said former Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo. "Chief Antolik knows this community inside-and-out and offers the judgment and leadership qualities that make him the right choice to lead the Berwyn Heights Police Department moving forward."
Chief Antolik served as the BHPD’s second-in-command since 2005 and headed the department’s Criminal Investigations Division (CID) for nearly a decade. In 2004, he joined the United States Secret Service Metro Area Fraud Task Force and was sworn in by the U.S. Department of Justice as a deputy U.S. Marshall.
“Over nearly two decades, I have come to love the people and community of Berwyn Heights,” said Chief Antolik. “As chief of police, I will continue to serve and protect with dedication and compassion. I will insist on the highest standards of integrity and ethics and will work every day to keep the town safe.”
He was raised in Washington D.C. and graduated from Canterbury School, Accokeek, MD. Chief Antolik attended the Prince George's County Police Academy, FBI Executive Development School and Advance National Law enforcement Institute.
His hobbies include martial arts, skiing, camping and spending quality time with family and friends. Chief Antolik strives to instill ethics and integrity within the police department and the community in which he serves.
