Having a goal and staying focused on that goal while having a positive attitude is how to get ahead in life, according to Benton Harbor native Deon Atkins.
At a young age, Atkins decided to go into law enforcement and now he’s a sworn officer with the United States Capitol Police in Washington.
Deon Atkins was one of the brave Capitol police officers who defended our Capitol on January 6th. He’s a 2011 Benton Harbor High School graduate & I was so glad to meet him in person. Extremely grateful for his service to our nation. Thank you for all that you do, Deon! 🇺🇸 #MI06 pic.twitter.com/idvHl7D5sf— Fred Upton #WearYourMask (@RepFredUpton) February 3, 2021
