Congratulations to Regina Scott of Los Angeles, California. She is now the first African American Female Deputy Chief with the Los Angeles Police Department. According to ABC 7 her advancement is part of the new Police Chief Michel Moore’s efforts to diversify upper ranks.
Here’s what she had to say about it according to Essence Magazine, “I am both honored and humbled by this historic promotion,” Scott said last week when the news was announced. “This promotion is more than just me, it is for those who paved the road before me, and those who dare to dream big. I want to thank Chief Moore for having the courage and insight for real change and reform. I am ready to help build trust and help bridge the gap between the police and communities we serve.”
