For four decades, Kevin Robinson has served as one of Phoenix’s leading public servants––as a decorated police officer, a nonprofit leader and professor at Arizona State University’s Watts College of Public Programs and Community Solutions.
Kevin began his career as a patrol officer in Arcadia in 1980 and worked his way up the ranks. While assigned as the Operations Lieutenant in the Planning and Research Bureau, Kevin led the process of building what is now the Ahwatukee substation. Kevin became Assistant Police Chief in 2000, a role he held for 13 years. During his more than 36 years as a police officer, Kevin was awarded the Medal of Valor and the Medal of Merit––the police department’s two highest citations for heroism and bravery.
