The Dallas and Collie J. Nicholson Alumni Chapters hosted a Welcome Reception for Dallas’ new Chief of Police, U. Renee Hall on September 7th at the Black Police Association of Greater Dallas building. Hall, a GSU alum, is the first female police chief in the city. Hall was a member of the Detroit Police Department for nearly 20 years before leaving her home city to take on the top policing position in Dallas. She majored in criminal justice while at Grambling State. A host of members from both chapters attended the event as well as Elba Garcia, Dallas County Commissioner District 4, K.L. Newhouse, deputy district director for U.S. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson of 30th District and John Wiley Price, Dallas County Commissioner District 3.
