Lambert, who has led the agency on an interim basis since December 2012, served as Metro's police chief for more than 28 years and more recently as an executive vice president. "The chief has done a dynamite job, and his team has done a dynamite job, there is no doubt," board chairman Gilbert Garcia said, referring to Lambert, during a December meeting with the Houston Chronicle editorial board.
