Leading the way for race and social justice with Seattle Chief of Police, Kathleen O’Toole
February 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Our upcoming Speaker Series event features Seattle’s Chief of Police and United Way of King County board member, Kathleen O’Toole. Join us for an intimate conversation about Chief O’Toole’s career journey, leadership philosophies and work around the Seattle Police Department’s race and social justice initiative.
Chief O’Toole is a career police officer and lawyer who has earned an international reputation for her leadership and reform strategies. She is Seattle’s first female Chief of Police serving since June 2014. She has held several other high-profile positions throughout her career – often being the first woman appointed to the role – including Boston Police Commissioner, Massachusetts Secretary of Public Safety and Superintendent (Chief) of the Metropolitan District Commission Police and Lieutenant Colonel overseeing Special Operations in the Massachusetts State Police. In 2012, she completed a six-year term as Chief Inspector of the Gardia Síochána Inspectorate, an oversight body responsible for bringing reform, best practice and accountability to the 17,000 member Irish national police service.
