Congratulations Newly Promoted Lieutenant Condon and Sergeant Turner!
On Wednesday, September 26, 2011, Chief Maggard swore in John Condon and Kyle Turner during a promotion ceremony in the City Hall Conference and Training Center.
Lieutenant Condon began his career with the City of Irvine in 1987 working in the Community Services Department. In 1994, while continuing his work in Community Services, he also swore in as a volunteer Reserve Police Officer until taking a full time position as an Irvine Police Officer in 1996.
Lieutenant Condon worked in patrol for three years before becoming a DARE officer in 1999. In that capacity he introduced the Irvine Police Department to literally hundreds of 5th graders throughout the city, many of whom will still stop tell any officer they see that they know Officer John Condon! Rounding out his time as an officer, Lieutenant Condon worked assignments at the Irvine Spectrum, in Investigations and on the Crisis Negotiation Team. He promoted to Sergeant in 2006 and continued to contribute to the Crisis Negotiations Team as a Team Leader, worked as a Patrol Sergeant, and as a Detective Sergeant where he was one of driving forces behind the development of the Irvine Police Department’s Victim Assistance Program.
Lieutenant Condon has been a resident of Irvine since 1973. He completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services at California State University, Fullerton and is a graduate of the prestigious Los Angeles Police Department’s West Point Leadership Program. Too numerous to list, Lieutenant Condon has received more than a dozen City, Department and Community awards highlighted by the Irvine Police Officer of the Year Award and the City of Irvine’s prestigious Cornerstone Award. Lieutenant Condon will fill the vacancy created by Lieutenant Henry Boggs’ retirement.
Kyle Turner began his law enforcement career with the City of Santa Ana in 1997 as a Police Cadet while at the same time completing his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Vanguard University. In 1999, he left Santa Ana and became a social worker while attending Graduate School at Azusa Pacific University where he earned his Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 2001. In 2004, Sergeant Turner began his career at the Irvine Police Department after graduating from the Rio Hondo Police Academy.
