Black and Brown in Blue is a lecture series aiming to build a bridge between the community and law enforcement for a more inclusive community environment. The program was designed to encourage open and honest dialogue in order to reduce barriers and misperceptions.

Join us for a conversation with Commissioner Ray, who is the 16th Commissioner of the California Highway Patrol (CHP); the first woman to lead the Department of approximately 11,000 members. Commissioner Ray is a 32-year veteran of the CHP and has earned numerous awards and commendations in her personal life and during her professional career with the Department. Commissioner Ray has been a pioneer for women in law enforcement as the first African American female in the CHP’s 93-year history to hold the position of Deputy Commissioner for the nation’s largest state police agency. 

As a leader in law enforcement, Commissioner Ray holds firm to the values set forth by the CHP’s Public Trust Initiative to serve and safeguard our communities with compassion and understanding. Throughout her career, Commissioner Ray has actively engaged with the communities she serves, seeking every opportunity to participate in outreach events, and active involvement in departmental programs to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to the people of California.
