The Passing of Abington Detective Steven Henze

On behalf of Chief Molloy and the entire Abington Township Police Department family, it is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Abington Detective Steven Henze. Steve served the Abington Community and the men and women of the Department for more than thirty years. Born and raised in Abington Township and a proud graduate of Abington Senior High School, Steve began his career in 1991 and served as a Patrol Officer for more than a decade before being assigned as an investigator in our Detective Division. Detective Henze was Abington’s most senior detective and was known for his remarkable interviewing skills. His skill and determination over the last twenty years in the Detective Division resulted in the arrest and prosecution of many high-profile offenders. Detective Henze also served as a Field Training Officer, a Firearms Instructor, and as a member of our Tactical Team for twenty years.

 Steve was well known throughout our community, and he was universally respected throughout the law enforcement region for his outstanding work and commitment on behalf of so many victims. He was a good friend, teammate, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. APD will not be the same without Steve, as we will all miss his quick wit and great sense of humor. Steve’s legacy will live on in the hearts of those who served alongside him over the past three decades.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Lisa, his daughter, Alexis, his sons Matthew and Jakob, his brothers and sisters of the Abington Township Police Department and the rest of the Henze family.
Rest in Peace, until we meet again.
