D.C. police have begun their search for a Chief Equity Officer under the Executive Office of the Chief of Police.
According to the department, the role would help lead diversity, equity and inclusion efforts inside of the nation’s capital.
The position would serve as an “ombudsman-like” mediator throughout the agency and coordinate the department’s diversity initiatives. The officer would also collaborate with other equity officials in the public and private sectors.
This position comes less than a year after D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser created the city’s first chief equity officer position.
That position, which Amber Hewitt currently holds, focuses on creating infrastructure “to ensure policy decisions and District programs are evaluated through an equity lens.”
