The owner of Custom Awards, Brian, has an extensive background in public safety. Beginning in 1981, he worked as a police officer with the NYPD for five years before transferring to the Amityville Village Police in 1985 where he retired as Sergeant 27 years later. He also served as Assistant Chief of the Amityville Fire Department from 1990 to 1996 and Chief of Department from 1996 to 1998.
Brian had always wanted to run his own business and in 2011, while speaking with the owners of Custom Awards about a plaque order, discovered they had planned on selling the business after nearly 22 years.
He made the decision to retire from the Amityville PD after nearly 32 years in law enforcement and purchase Custom Awards in 2013. Brian was attracted to the company because of its close association with both the Police and Fire Departments throughout the metropolitan area. He was also impressed with the attention to detail the owners gave to their work.
At Custom Awards, we strive to produce quality plaques and trophies that stand out among the rest.
