“We make great efforts and succeed in hiring a diverse workforce that reflects the diversity of the community we serve”
So we’re now going to have diversity police? Expect the Democrats to start pushing this on a national level.

Penn expands diversity bureaucracy to its…police force?
The University of Pennsylvania appointed a commanding officer of “diversity, equity, and inclusion” for its police force.
On February 16, Penn Today — the school’s official news service — detailed the appointment of Officer Nicole McCoy to the new position.
Vice President for Public Safety and Superintendent of Penn Police Maureen Rush explained to Penn Today that the university wants to “have a central person who has a strategic plan to work with the community in West Philadelphia, to work with the community inside of Penn — its faculty, staff, and students — and also to work within the Police Department on the issues of diversity, equity, inclusion.”
“We make great efforts and succeed in hiring a diverse workforce that reflects the diversity of the community we serve,” she added.
McCoy has worked for the university since 2002. She assumed her role — which is still “unfolding,” according to the university — on January 1. Currently, McCoy is attending all meetings for University City’s various public safety associations.
Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald told Campus Reform that the university police force’s resources would be better used elsewhere.
“Homicides rose over 35% in Philadelphia in 2020, compared to 2019. Eleven children were fatally shot,” noted Mac Donald. “None of those children, virtually all Black, was killed by a police officer.”
