'A sign of progress' — Prairie Village names Maj. Byron Roberson as city's first Black police chief

History in the making in Kansas!

“There’s always a first in everything; that, to me, is progress, and progress in the right direction,” Roberson said. “Some may be surprised that in 2020, I am the first African-American police chief in a very progressive county like Johnson. From all accounts, it’s true, but that is a sign of progress. That is another example of the trailblazing of the city of Prairie Village.”

Congrats to Chief Roberson and to the Prairie Village Police Department community.

Dep. Chief Byron Roberson, who has served the Prairie Village Police Department for the past 26 years, will begin his new role as the city’s seventh chief of police when Mayor Eric Mikkelson officially appoints him on Jan. 4, 2021.

Please join us in welcoming our newly appointed Police Chief.

City Manager Trey Yelverton has appointed Col. Al Jones, a 25-year veteran of the Baltimore County Police Department, as the City of Arlington’s new police chief.

Jones, who currently serves as the chief of Baltimore County Police Department’s Community Relations Bureau, was selected through a robust, community-based process that began in June. Seventy-four law enforcement leaders from across the nation applied to lead Arlington’s nearly 900-member police force. Yelverton said Jones was an ideal choice because of his years of experience in implementing strong, community-based policing principles, his understanding of the future of policing, and his capability to lead our officers and community of nearly 400,000 residents in that direction.

“We have a great police department, and we have identified a leader who can continue ensuring excellent service to our residents and move our city positively forward,” Yelverton said. “In the true spirit of community policing, I know that our whole community will come together and support Chief Jones and our police department in keeping our community safe."

Jones began his law enforcement career in 1995 as a Baltimore County police officer and steadily rose through the ranks of the 18th largest law enforcement agency in the nation. Since 2018, Jones has overseen management of the Community Relations Bureau, focused on building trust within communities throughout the county while diversifying the agency to better mirror the communities it serves. Baltimore County is a metropolitan area with approximately 835,000 residents outside of the City of Baltimore. Baltimore County, CALEA accredited since 1985, has long been recognized as a progressive agency in the development of community-based policing.

Jones said he is greatly looking forward to getting to know residents and officers personally, adding that he appreciates the community’s participation in the robust selection process. In addition to taking a data-driven approach to respond to and find efficient, effective solutions for the city’s needs, Jones said he believes building relationships between police officers and neighborhoods, businesses and other stakeholders is critical to creating a place where people want to live, work, learn and play.

“Officers can’t be everywhere, which is why it is vitally important for the community to be engaged and help serve as our eyes and ears. Neighborhood involvement with the police department creates not only a safer community, but a stronger community,” Jones said.

Arlington will host a public event to welcome Jones when he begins as the new police chief on Jan. 11, 2021. Details will be announced at a later date. Assistant Police Chief Kevin Kolbye will continue to serve as the department’s interim police chief until then.

Yelverton thanked the community, city employees and other stakeholders for participating in the selection process and providing valuable input and perspective on the city’s needs related to police leadership. He also thanked The Bowman Group, a local Arlington consulting firm with a specialty in police and public practices who helped recruit and vet the applicants.

In September, Jones and eight other police chief candidates had the opportunity to engage in face-to-face interviews with a wide range of panelists that brought diverse perspectives and experiences. The series of panel interviews included two community panels, a regional police chief panel, an internal police employee panel, and a city executive panel. Then last month, Jones and four other finalists completed another round of internal interviews and participated in a forum where members of the community were able to ask questions to the candidates directly.

Jones recently participated in executive leadership training from groups such as the Major Cities Chiefs Association Executive Leadership Institute and the FBI-Law Enforcement Executive Development Association, which allowed him to engage with chiefs across the nation to discuss significant issues affecting policing in America as well as implementation of the 21st Century Policing Report. Jones has been recognized by groups such as the Baltimore Country Branch of NAACP and the Islamic Society of Baltimore for exemplary service, leadership abilities and for being an advocate for equal rights. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Hartford and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Ashworth College.

Hello NOBLE, by now you have seen that our updated website has gone live. This has been a labor of love and fully designed to meet a primary goal of of NOBLE's strategic plan, that being the advancement of NOBLE's position in the global law enforcement stage. I took on this task because it was apparent that our old site was inadequate for NOBLE's purposes. We did not have day to day control, meaning we could not add content in a timely fashion, and visually, it did not portray us in a professional light. I would like to thank Ms. Destiny Pacheco for her outstanding work on the design and development of NOBLEnatl.org. I also want to acknowledge the enthusiastic support of our National Executive Board, and the assistance of our Executive Director Mr. Dwayne Crawford, our Deputy Director Mr. Keenon James, and our IT person Mr. Arvinder Singh in the completion of this project. It could not have been accomplished without you! I am very happy with the final product, and I hope you will be too! NOBLE always, Wayne

NOBLE, on my wayneharris.org site, I affirm that I am dedicated to ensuring our chapters have the necessary tools for success. I want to expand on that and be specific with what I mean. I've noticed, during my time as our National Financial Secretary, that some of our chapters are extremely active while others are not. We have chapters that have built relationships with organizations in their communities that have assisted them in the business of NOBLE, and we have chapters that have highly structured fundraising strategies. As your National Second Vice President, I will establish a committee to evaluate best practices within our chapters and have those practices disseminated throughout the organization. My goal is to have all chapters able to fundraise successfully and build their operating capital, and to outline how corporate relationships are built and maintained. Please consider voting for me as our next National 2nd VP. Thank you!
