If you're not getting paid for it, it's no longer your "job". The cops, including Blake in that scene, are standing up because they want to. It has nothing to do with their work or career anymore. Blake has the same spirit that Bruce had minus the training. Because of his short, but impactful moments that he shared with Bruce...he becomes the man to get that mantle.

It's not about how long he knew him, it's about the feeling you get from a person and their stories. He saw that Blake was a pretty damn straightforward guy. We see that throughout the movie even with his scenes involving Gordon. He wears his heart on his sleeve and Bruce can see the intention.
