Celebrating Black Stories And Voices:
“The police are the community and the community is the police. If we don’t start recognizing that simple fact, if we don’t start healing – together, we will continue to wake up to the same headlines of unarmed black men being shot, of police officers being ambushed, and of a growing rift between police and the people they’re sworn to protect.”
Today’s guest is police officer, Dr. Obed Magny. Dr. Magny grew up in Boston, Massachusetts where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology from the University of Massachusetts at Boston. Dr. Magny relocated to Sacramento where he obtained a Master’s Degree in Emergency Services Administration from the California State University at Long Beach, and a Doctorate Degree in Organizational Leadership from the University of La Verne. Currently a police officer in the Sacramento Police Department, Dr. Magny works in patrol. Previous assignments included Narcotics, School Resource Officer, Crime Suppression Unit, and the Parole Intervention Team. Dr. Magny also served on the Board of Directors for the Sacramento Police Officers Association (SPOA) for three years.
