The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) president Chief C.J. Davis of the Durham Police Department spoke during the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting on June 16, 2020. The video is lengthy, however if you would like to fast forward to Chief Davis, please go to the 3:46:00 mark and the 4:16:00 mark. With that being said, I would encourage you to watch the video in its entirety.
Thank you Chief Davis for speaking out!
"It is my honor and pleasure to announce NOBLE National Treasurer, Gina V. Hawkins, Chief of Police for the City of Fayetteville Police Department, North Carolina, was selected to be a member of the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice," said NOBLE National President Cerelyn J. Davis. "Chief Hawkins is the only NOBLE member selected to be on the Commission. She brings a powerful, passionate, and articulate voice of advocacy for law enforcement officers and the community. Her experience and credentials speak for themselves, but her connection to community and 21st Century Policing is what makes her the ideal candidate to take on this monumental task."
The Commission is the first executive level commission on law enforcement in more than 50 years. The commissioners have been charged with studying key issues facing law enforcement including substance abuse, homelessness, and mental illness while also examining best practices for recruiting, training, and supporting law enforcement officers. NOBLE members and supporters have a vested interest in the commission's work, anticipated recommendations, and next steps. NOBLE National President Davis also said, "The expertise that NOBLE brings to discussions on the criminal justice system, law enforcement, officer wellness, and community relations is essential to ensuring this commission represents the diversity and inclusivity that our profession and communities reflect."
The 16 commissioners, representing federal, state, and local law enforcement as well as courts and municipal city leaders, were sworn in this morning during a ceremony lead by Attorney General William P. Barr. The commission is chaired by COPS Office Director, Phil Keith.
