Black Trailblazers in Blue | First Black Top Brass


In this final installment of Black Trailblazers in Blue for 2023, we are going to highlight the stories of three key public servants and Chiefs of Police who have led major city police departments – and the cities themselves – through times of turmoil and created policies that have greatly shaped the way policing is done today.

Black Trailblazers in Blue honors the service and sacrifice of black law enforcement officers throughout history and highlights some of the key individuals who have made a significant mark on the history of black law enforcement and law enforcement in general.
