Lubbock Police Department holds Promotions and Awards Ceremony

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock Chief of Police creates a new award for outstanding police efforts. 

The Chief's Commendation Award was given to Officer John Barber and Officer Thomas Thompson for their positive behavior and extraordinary performance. In addition, quarterly awards and promotions were also recognized. 

"I think too often anyone in their career, whether they're in the banking industry, the oil and gas, whatever it is it doesn't matter, we too often focus on the negatives. I've been working for the government for 30 years. And it's always easy to point out when someone doesn't do a good job," Chief Stevens said. "So, it's always exciting to get to point out when they do a great job."

Three officers were promoted to Sergeant, five to Detective and one to Corporal. Steven said having these ceremonies as frequently as the department does shows the value of LPD protecting the city.
