From RPWF, “Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown is no stranger to RPWF. Her presentation in July 2013 left a lasting impression for the audience. We’ve asked her to return to share wisdom and insights into how we as individuals and through our organizations can help to quell the negativity that seems to be gripping so many communities today. How can we, together and as individuals, foster community, civility and respect in Raleigh? Where do we start? How should we engage?
Police Chief Deck-Brown has spent a career keeping the peace through law enforcement. During her tenure with Raleigh’s Police Department she has worked to prevent crime, worked as a detective on assault cases and in commercial crime, and later in her career she was responsible for personnel and recruitment for the department. In June 2011, Cassandra became deputy chief, directing day-to-day administrative functions and professional standards. In 2013, she founded Charm School for Girls, a course designed to broaden the scope of life’s possibilities and build self-esteem for at-risk teens. While navigating her career, she earned a Master’s degree in public administration from North Carolina State University. A native North Carolinian, she received her undergraduate degree from East Carolina University.
