BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : BLACK AFRICAN AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER :
Since Wiley G. Overton was sworn in on March 6th 1891 as the first Black New York City Police Officer and recognized as the first Black Police Officer in the United States Law Enforcement Officers of African descent have faced ostracism, racism and violence to prove that we too belong in the system of Justice called Law Enforcement. Blacks in Law Enforcement recognize the rich history of the African American Law Enforcement professional who fought for our survival and 120 years later, we now have Black Commissioners and Chiefs in Law Enforcement.We will never forget the shoulders that we on, because we did not get there on our own.
