One of the Most Dangerous Cities Hires its 1st Black Female Police Chief


The new Police Commissioner of Philadelphia is Danielle Outlaw, who comes to the post after serving as chief of the Portland, Oregon Police Department for the past 2 years.

The 2012 graduate of Pepperdine University Business School, has been in law enforcement for the past 20 years and is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.

The 45-year old mother of two takes the helm of one of the country’s biggest and crime riddled cities, and is the first African American woman to hold this position.

Outlaw made her first appearance inside Philadelphia City Hall last week.

In  accepting the position she said that she brings a “very unique prospective to the job.”

As a mother of two sons, she said she “understood both the fear and suspicions that communities associate with the badge, and the rationale behind police policies and procedures.”
