The Long Beach City Prosecutor’s Office announced Thursday that it will present awards to individuals and groups who have made “a positive, significant impact in the City of Long Beach in the past year” while working with the city prosecutor. The recipients chosen to receive City Prosecutor Impact awards include:
• Detective Mark Steenhausen of the Long Beach Police Department, for his investigation and personal efforts on the “Baby Maggie” case which was originally reported as a baby found at a gas station, but ultimately proven to be a case of child abandonment by the mother.
• Judith Crumpton, local animal advocate, for her efforts to bring to fruition an annual conference on animal care and cruelty prevention.
• Long Beach Police Department patrol officers Josh Brearley and Andrew Fox and the North Division Directed Enforcement Team (DET), LBPD, for their success in combating gang related crime.
• Long Beach Police Department criminalist Greg Gossage and police officer Tyrone Anderson, for their technical expertise and work relating to DUI investigations.
• Long Beach Police Department Detective David Strohman, of the Narcotics Division, for leadership in the effort to reduce illegal drug activity in Long Beach.
“These unsung heroes make a real difference in our city,” said City Prosecutor Doug Haubert. “There are many who deserve recognition, but these winners stand out for their hard work and dedication.”
Impact awards will be presented at a reception on Thursday, Jan. 31. This is the second year of the city prosecutor’s Impact awards. Last year’s winners included police officers, the executive director of a wetlands protection organization and a school counselor.
