Long Beach City Councilwoman Suzie Price, Third District, and Councilwoman Stacy Mungo, Fifth District, will be hosting a reception to honor outgoing Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) East Division Commander Paul LeBaron on Monday, March 9, 2015 at the Gaslamp Restaurant.
“I am pleased to recognize Commander LeBaron for his hard work and dedication to the east side,” Councilwoman Price said. “I am also thrilled to welcome our new East Division Commander Griffin to serve residents of the Third District.”
Effective March 7, 2015, Commander Elizabeth Griffin, a 22-year veteran of LBPD will assume oversight of the East Patrol Division, replacing Commander LeBaron who will now oversee the Detective Division of the Investigations Bureau. Police Commanders typically rotate every few years to afford them increased opportunities for community engagement and career development.
“Commander LeBaron has been a tremendous asset to our community and an exemplar as a steward of the public trust,” Councilwoman Mungo remarked. “Our neighborhoods, residents and businesses are safer because of his leadership.”
The Reception to Honor Commander Paul LeBaron and Welcome New East Division Commander Elizabeth Griffin is Monday, March 9, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at The Gaslamp Restaurant and Bar 6251 E. Pacific Coast Hwy, Long Beach, CA 90803.
The reception is free to all attendees. For more information, please contact the Office of Councilwoman Suzie Price at (562) 570-6300.
