Before the Badge: Lt. Keith Doherty, Classically Trained Chefhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1879Police5/3/2021 12:00:00 AMhttps://youtu.be/YyJyQUn6pWYBefore the Badge: Lt. Keith Doherty, Classically Trained Chef<div class="ExternalClass53F079F124BA4AD58CEE666ECCA28799"><html> <em>Phoenix Police officers come from many different backgrounds, including different careers. The department's video series, ‘</em><a target="_blank" href="https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFNuct3MvVGa0aB67cIDS6PG4dPM9eNvE"><em>Before the Badge</em></a><em>,’ profiles some of those careers, and the diversity they bring to the department today. </em> <br> <br>Keith Doherty is the lieutenant over the Crisis Intervention Teams and Community Response Squad with the Phoenix Police Department. But he hasn't always been in law enforcememnt. Before the badge, he was a classically trained chef. <br><br>Doherty basically grew up in a kitchen. Born and raised in the Boston area, his grandparents owned a bakery called Wolfies in Cape Cod. That is where he got his culinary start.<br><br>"I worked the overnight shifts baking with my brother, my sister as well," Doherty explained. "I could bake a cake and muffins [as a] 12, 13 year old."<br><br>For college, he followed in his brother's footsteps, also a chef, and headed to Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. <br><br>"It is one of the strictest types of schools," Doherty said. "It is a full chef's uniform for every class, including academic class. Just like a regular college, it's an accredited university. I took math, and science, and history type courses. But I also took Intro to French Cuisine. I took dining room service, fine dining, wine tasting, sommelier type classes.<br><br>While in school, he interned at a Mediterranean spot in London, and worked in a couple restaurants inside Fenway Park. After graduation, he eventually transferred to the management side of the restaurant business. From there, he went into law enforcement<br><br>"They definitely do not connect," Doherty laughed as he described his jump in careers. <br><br>Turns out, in addition to family ties in cooking, there is also a family connection to public safety. Doherty's father was a Boston firefighter and his grandfather was a Boston police officer. <br><br>"One of the challenges is, when it transitions from the kitchen to running restaurants, it's a nearly 24-hour-a-day job," Doherty said. "It's salary, it's a lot of hours, in a kitchen, 12-15 hours a day. And at that point, I was getting older. Decided I just needed a change."<br><br>After moving to get away from the snow, he started at the Phoenix Police Department in 2000, and has been working his way up the ranks since then. Now a leader of the department's Community Engagement Bureau, he said the food-service industry experience was not for nothing. <br><br>"The customer service side of both of my careers overlap greatly, and they overlap every single day," Lt. Doherty said. "I think that most every career field out there has something that transitions into law enforcement. There's so many things that we haven't even thought of yet. Those folks in other careers are going to bring what we haven't thought of to us. And help us get to that next step."<br><br>Lt. Doherty does still enjoy cooking. He said he splits the time cooking for his family with his wife, but especially still loves to bake — making cakes for every family member's birthday.<br><br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolicePhoenixPolice BeforeTheBadge Phoenix Police, Before the BadgePolice Main PIOphoenixpd.pio@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/36/Police2.pngPhoenixPolice

Phoenix Convention Center Welcomes Back Conventions Since the Start of the Pandemichttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phoenix-convention-center/1960Phoenix Convention Center6/21/2021 7:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1960/SFrances_180326_3463_C.jpgPhoenix Convention Center Welcomes Back Conventions Since the Start of the Pandemic<div class="ExternalClassCE76CD56B4F24A4B95842FB1DC8810A2"><html> <p>​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>The Phoenix Convention Center, along with Visit Phoenix and downtown hotel partners, have welcomed the first convention since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The convention group, American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA), hosted nearly 1,000 attendees during its 2021 Annual Conference from June 18-20. </p><p> “It is great to see our Convention Center back in action and to welcome visitors back to downtown Phoenix,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Staff at the Phoenix Convention Center has gone to great lengths to ensure our guests will be safe and can protect their health while they experience all Phoenix has to offer. Travel and tourism are an important part of our economy. Plus, it’s great to see our city come back to life!” </p><p>The economic lift from meetings, conventions and exhibitions greatly impacts local communities and all of Arizona. The Greater Phoenix economy relies on visitor spending which funds essential government services that enrich our community. </p><p>“Meetings and conventions are a substantial economic contributor to the downtown Phoenix community and the Greater Phoenix area,” said Lorne Edwards, Senior Vice President of Convention Sales & Services at Visit Phoenix. “As the industry moves beyond online meetings and video calls, we’re ready to remind meeting attendees why in-person meetings in Phoenix offer more than just valuable networking time with peers, but also a chance to experience a new culture and flourishing community.” </p><p> Ann Battrell, MSDH and CEO of American Dental Hygienists’ Association, says “The American Dental Hygienists’ Association’s 2021 Annual Conference in Phoenix has been an incredible opportunity for the dental hygiene community to come together to learn, connect and grow for the first time in two years. We have been warmly welcomed and appreciate the city and Convention Center’s focus on the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. ADHA appreciates everyone’s partnership in making this conference memorable for all.” </p><p>While temporarily closed, the Phoenix Convention Center implemented new health and safety measures, which include enhanced cleaning, contactless transactions and joined some of the largest and most successful facilities in the United States by becoming the first public venue in Arizona to receive<strong> </strong><a href="https://gbac.issa.com/gbac-star-facility-accreditation/" target="_blank"><strong>GBAC STAR™</strong></a> accreditation. Recognized as the gold standard of safe venues, GBAC STAR™ provides third-party validation to ensure the implementation of rigorous protocols in response to biorisk situations. </p><p> “The COVID-19 pandemic limited our ability to host large gatherings for more than a year. During this period, and with the guidance and advice of healthcare experts, we have implemented strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols with our guests and staff’s health and safety as the top priority,” said 100 NORTH 3 RD STREET, PHOENIX, ARIZONA 85004 Phoenix Convention Center Director John Chan. “The GBAC STAR accreditation further strengthens our commitment to excellence as we welcome the return of conventions.” </p><p>Despite the 2020 shut down, the collective downtown partners booked 72+ conventions and a record number of delegates to Phoenix in future meeting years. From July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020 91 meetings were booked into the Phoenix Convention Center, which includes rebooked meetings following cancellations during the pandemic. These bookings represent more than $90 million estimated direct spending generated by delegates. </p><p> <strong><a href="https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1PmTAlhUJ95vBW964OLsCSMXb3Z4pzLx6" target="_blank">View image gallery from ADHA 2021 Annual Conference Ribbon Cutting Ceremony</a></strong> </p><p>About the Phoenix Convention Center The award-winning, GBAC STAR™ accredited, Phoenix Convention Center is one of the largest convention venues in the United States.
