Leveraging the diversity of this great nation has become an important aspect of running a successful law enforcement agency. When members of the public believe their law enforcement organizations represent them, understand them, and respond to them; and when communities perceive authorities as fair, legitimate, and accountable, it enhances trust in law enforcement and instills public confidence in government.
On this episode of the Blue View, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down with Robert Gaddy, a captain with the North Carolina Central University Police Department and the current state lodge vice president. With over 25 years of law enforcement experience, Robert is a career veteran with expert skills in tactical law enforcement, drug interdiction, and narcotics and criminal investigations.
Robert’s FOP journey started in 1995 when he joined the Durham Police Department as a police recruit. Since then, he has served his local and state lodge in multiple positions. Nationally, Robert currently serves as the National Diversity Committee Chairman.
