Super Leaders at Embassy of Canada honoring DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier

On October 15th, despite tornadoes and rain, 220 of us gathered last night at the Embassy of Canada to present DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier with a Lifetime Achievement award for Community Service.

 

She gave a 22 minute heartfelt speech, including dropping out of junior high school, and becoming a single mother at 15. She thanked many of her mentors, including her mother who was there.

 

Our  friend Dr.Howard Silby made a 6 minute film about her great American story, as she is now one of the most respected officers of the law nationwide.

 

She is modernizing her 4,000 officers with plans to equip them all with cameras, which has proven to improve both the behavior of police and the public.
