Meet the Police Chief of Charlottesville, VA, Rashall Brackney at the next general meeting of Delaware County United for Sensible Gun Control on February 3, 7pm, at MLUC.
She is a staunch gun violence prevention advocate, and spoke out in favor of the Assault Weapons Ban at a U.S. Congressional hearing on the bill this past fall. Prior to her time in Virginia, Chief Brackney was a 30 year veteran of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. She is a recognized expert in the areas of harm reduction, procedural and resorative justice practices, and community-police relations. Due to her work in these areas, Dr. Brackney was selected by the Department of Justice to address biased-based and hate crimes reporting challenges in the nation.
