LBPD Sergeant Recipient of 2010 Golden Badge Foundation Award
2010-10-15 · By Editor
Long Beach Police Department Sergeant Byron Blair will be honored with the Golden Badge Foundation’s “Top Supervisor’s Award” on October 29, 2010. This award recognizes law enforcement supervisors whose exceptional performance resulted in an improvement to officer safety, interdepartmental relations, and/or the agency’s public image. Sergeant Blair’s strong leadership abilities, character and commitment to excellence make him very deserving of this high honor.
Sergeant Blair began his career with the department as a civilian employee in 1996, working in the field of forensics for four and a half years before becoming an officer. As an officer, he worked in the Patrol Division, Recruitment, and as Background Investigator. In 2007 he was promoted to the rank of sergeant and worked in the Patrol Division and is currently an investigator in the Internal Affairs Division.
With over 14 years of serving the department and the community, Sergeant Blair’s supervisory style is one that exudes integrity and professionalism. “Part of my supervisory philosophy is to ensure that I take care of the little things first so I do not have to address major problems later. Although the statement sounds simple, the actions are not. I take pride in being actively engaged, having a high level of trust and accountability between myself and the people I work with, and engaging in honest communication.”
Sergeant Byron Blair will be honored along with other law enforcement personnel at an award ceremony on Friday, October 29, 2010 at 7:00 p.m., at the Irvine Marriott, at 18000 Von Karman Avenue, in Irvine.
