- Rodney Monroe, Chief of Police (Retired), Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department
Chief Monroe became a police officer in 1979 with the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, one of the most violent police districts in southeast D.C. There, he rose to Assistant Chief of Police, the department's second highest sworn rank. In May 2001, he became Chief of Police for the Macon, Georgia Police Department, and in 2005 was recruited to lead the police department for the City of Richmond, where he helped decrease the number of homicides by 33 percent. In 2008, he was hired as the new Chief of Police for Charlotte-Mecklenburg (CMPD), and thanks to better use of police technology, he reduced homicides to their lowest level in more than three decades.
