In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth, we will be highlighting one of our Executive Board members and Central Florida PBA Trustee, Steven Slade.

Steven began his career in law enforcement as a Lieutenant with the U.S Air Force where he was assigned to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana, Anderson AFB in Guam, and Eielson AFB in Alaska. Throughout his time in the Air Force, he also completed a tour in the Middle East in support of Operation Desert Storm. In 1992, he joined the Tallahassee Police Department where he served the citizens of Tallahassee for over 28 years. During his time with the Tallahassee Police Department, he served as a Uniform Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Internal Affairs Investigator, Patrol Sergeant, General Property Crimes Sergeant, Lieutenant of the Special Operations Division, Trends and Tactics (Intel) Lieutenant, Special Operations Division Commander and Watch Commander.

Steven joined the PBA in 1993 because of its commitment to protecting law enforcement officers' rights and negotiating the best possible wages and benefits, in addition to the superior legal services offered to its members.

When asked what being a member of the PBA means to him, Steven says “If you are going to serve in the law enforcement career field, you must be a part of an organization that will always fight for your rights! There is no other organization equipped to do that better than the Florida PBA. From legal representation to collective bargaining and legislative representation, the Florida PBA is the best in the business.”

Thank you, Steven, for all that you do and for your years of dedicated service to the PBA!
