We say goodbye, thanks, and congrats to Detective Steve "Craw" Crawford today. Steve is retiring after 30 years of law enforcement service. He began his career at San Gabriel PD at the young age of 21. Steve lateralled to Arcadia PD in 1988 where he worked the remainder of his career. Steve has served as a Field Training Officer, a Traffic Officer, and two rotations as a Detective.
Detective Crawford is shown receiving his City plaque from Chief Bob Guthrie and handing off the "Short Timer" chain to Detective Steve Turner who is retiring in two weeks. The chain is a long standing APD tradition and is kept by the "next up" retiree.
We started a new tradition last year by having an informal Department wide luncheon for the retiree on their last work day. Members of APD, past and present, along with his family, joined us today to congratulate Steve.
Thank you Steve for a great career and your dedication to the City of Arcadia.
