GRAMBLING STATE UNIVERSITY GRADUATE 

BECOMES DALLAS, TEXAS' FIRST WOMAN POLICE CHIEF









     At a Press Conference in Detroit, Deputy Police Chief Renee Hall, gave a farewell to Detroit and spoke on her plans to lead the Dallas Police Department. She will be the first woman to ever lead the Dallas Police Department. Chief Hall was chosen among 8 candidates including officers from Seattle and Los Angeles.

     Hall, a Detroit native, said “It is an honor to be selected. I am ready to take the next step in my career.” She said, “I grew up in this organization. I’ve been here 19 years. The men and women of the Detroit Police Dept. are my family. It is through them that I’ve garnered the experience that makes me qualified to be Dallas’ Police Chief.”

We all know how important back to school hair can be. Gabby Bows was created by then seven year old Gabrielle Goodwin and her mother who made it their mission to solve the age old problem of disappearing hair barrettes by creating the double face double snap barrette.
