Late LAPD Deputy Chief Garner Receives TCS’ Inaugural President’s Award
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology honored the late LAPD Deputy Chief Kenneth O. Garner on May 15 with the inaugural President’s Award for Visionary Leadership. The award was presented to Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese by Chicago School President Michael Horowitz at the Board of Trustees meeting held at the L.A. Campus. The LAPD Re-Entry Task Force and officers from the South L.A. Bureau were also in attendance to accept the award.
The President’s Award for Visionary Leadership recognized Deputy Chief Garner for his dedication and service to the greater Los Angeles community, for his belief that with each person resides the ability to change, and for his willingness to break down barriers, open communication, and seek unity through collaboration. Deputy Chief Garner was working with TCS Southern California on his vision for a new prisoner re-entry program before his death in March.
