In honour of African Heritage Month, RCMP welcomed some of the incredible women who are featured in “HerStory,” a book authored by Sgt. Craig Smith that tells the story of 40 black women across Canada who have made differences in Canadian law enforcement.
Black women making a difference in law enforcement.
Dr. Carolyn Thomas and Deputy Chief Sheriff Leanne Sample spoke about their experiences in law enforcement and were joined by Charla Williams, Vicki Samuel and Anne Simmons for a Q & A session which allowed the large audience to interact and ask questions, share praise or experiences.
The event was well attended at RCMP HQ in Dartmouth and highlighted achievements and goals for the African community not only in policing but in many other community based aspects.
