ALEXANDRIA, Va. (BRPROUD) – Captain Frederick Thomas was sworn in as the new national president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE).
He has been working in law enforcement for over 30 years and is currently the commander of the Scotlandville Substation with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
“Thank you to all the presidents before me and to those who will come after. Thank you for your dedication to our communities, your commitment to representing our cause, and your focus on the basic principles proven to achieve our goal of equality and public safety in every neighborhood of this great American nation,” said President Thomas in his vision speech to attendees of the organization’s virtual 45th Annual Training Conference.
Thomas recently served as NOBLE’s National First Vice President, according to a news release from NOBLE.
“Our local chapters are NOBLE blood and they run deep in the veins of the body of this country. NOBLE is a vital breath of life in a community that shows up. Our spirit is found participating in local events for underserved areas. Go ahead and join that Saturday morning walk to raise awareness about diabetes. Go on and march with a group fundraising for sickle cell anemia research. Be the one that gets the first life-saving COVID-19 vaccine in your neighborhood. That’s the NOBLE spirit,” remarked Thomas in his speech.
