Columbia, MO, April 3, 2017 – The Boone County Republican Central Committee (BCRCC) announced today that it has selected Sherriff’s Detective Tom O’Sullivan as the 2017 Dr. Edward H. Robb Public Servant Award recipient. The Robb Award recognizes outstanding service by an employee of any city, county or public entity in Boone County. Detective O’Sullivan currently works for the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.
“This annual award recognizes employees who represent the best in public service for Boone County and its citizens, and Detective O’Sullivan has shown that through his almost 29 years of service and dedication to the Boone County Sherriff’s Office,” said BCRCC Chairman Mike Zweifel.
During his tenure with the Sheriff’s Department, O’Sullivan has worked on the road as a patrol officer, in the jail, as a member of the Mid-Missouri Major Case Squad, and as a DARE and School Resource Officer. For the past 14 years, O’Sullivan has worked in the Investigations department. Additionally, O’Sullivan serves as the principle Public Information Officer for the department, communicating with the press and the public on a regular basis.
The Robb Award is limited to full-time, non-elected employees in Boone County and is strictly non-partisan. The award is named after Dr. Edward H. Robb, the late Boone County Presiding Commissioner who passed away in 2011. Rosa Robb, Dr. Robb‘s wife, said, “Ed’s family and I appreciate that the Committee has chosen Detective O’Sullivan as this year’s honoree for his many years of service and dedication to keep Boone County and its citizens safe.”
The award will be presented at the Boone County Republican’s annual Lincoln Day Banquet on April 7, 2017, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott in Columbia. For more information on the banquet, visit the BCRCC’s website at http://www.boonecountyrepublicans.com
