Anthony Conner, 39, is set to become the first African-American president of the Police Officers Association in Ohama, Nebraska according to Blavity.

Conner has given 18 years of his life to four different police stations in Nebraska and believes during all those years that the Omaha Police Department has been mindful of diversity inclusion.

“At the end of the day, we’re all brothers and sisters in blue,” Connor told Omaha. “At the same time, I do recognize the history there and that some people will see this as a moment of pride.”

Former Omaha Police Officers Association President John Wells will be handing the baton to Conner who already sees places for improvement in the department.

“I think it’s important that our association reaches out to the community to explain how we, directly and indirectly, affect policing in Omaha and how we positively affect policing in Omaha,” Conner said.

    This is Progression or the process of developing or moving gradually towards a more advanced state. But we all know MOST Police are not Black they are blue once in uniform. So I hope this officer uses his position to make a difference. As I said we are moving forward into better world for the future of our children.

  2. Ummmm. This must have been an oversite on the fake prez part. He’s hell bent on destroying every accomplishment Obama had, because he can.
