Monterey Police Department Field Training Officer Ron Blair has been selected as the Monterey Police Department’s 2012 Police Officer of the year. Ron joined the department in 1995 where he quickly demonstrated his commitment to serving others. During his tenure at Monterey, Ron has worked patrol both as an officer and as a Field Training Officer, was a motor officer, worked our DUI unit, and served on our Community Action Team where he patrolled our downtown and the Coastal Trail.
Ron is being recognized as a model officer, someone who demonstrates an unparalleled level of commitment and drive. Throughout his career, Ron has been someone to whom others sought advice and assistance. Whether in his formal capacity as an FTO or merely in a one on one conversation with a peer, Ron always finds time to help develop those around him by sharing his knowledge and experience.
The Monterey Police Department places a strong emphasis on Service to others. He is not only an outstanding member of the Monterey Police Department but also a fine example of the wonderful men and women who make up our chosen profession, law enforcement.
