OFC SCOTT BENNETT
Scott, our spring 2021 recruit, brings to Parkway more than 12 years' security experience in the private sector. He has worked primarily in high crime areas, so is no stranger to conflict. While capable of intervening when necessary, Scott is most satisfied when he can resolve a volatile situation through use of well practiced de-escalation techniques. He also finds that speaking his second language, Spanish, can be useful in such situations. Scott describes himself as "funny, determined and loyal." He is positive and good humored - definitely a "people" person. Scott certainly has found his niche as a Parkway Security Dispatcher.
Scott hails from a military family and has called many places home, including San Diego, Seattle and Guam. Of these, Seattle holds his heart. A long term goal for Scott is to return to Seattle and cheer the Mariners and Seahawks.
When not working, Scott enjoys photography and photo editing. His favorite subject to capture is Amelia, his 6 year old daughter. He also practices martial arts, winning 2003 Midwest Martial Arts Champion in two divisions!
Scott's Personal Motto: In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
