The NFL Security Team recently got a facelift. Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief left in August to begin a stint as V.P. of Security for the NFL.
Kathy Lainer served 26 years with distinction in one of the most high-profile positions in the U.S. Her leadership allowed the District to go relatively unscathed during the “Black Lives Matter” protests during the Ferguson, Missouri uprisings. This is one example of how she sought to connect to her constituency throughout her tenure.
She was appointed in January, 2007, after Charles Ramsey, now Philadelphia’s Police Commissioner, moved on to other opportunities.
