‘I’m here to serve’: DeKalb introduces its first female police chief

0

DeKalb County formally introduced its new police chief to members of the community on Monday, heralding a historic appointment.

Mirtha V. Ramos will be the county’s first permanent female police chief when she begins the new position Nov. 4. She comes to DeKalb as a 22-year veteran of the Miami-Dade Police Department, where she is currently serving as a division chief.

“I come here with no agenda. I come here to work with the men and women of the DeKalb County Police Department,” Ramos said at a news conference. “I guarantee you that I’m here to serve.”

DeKalb CEO Michael Thurmond, introducing Ramos, said it was a “historic moment in the history of DeKalb County.

“She is the very best, the brightest,” Thurmond said of Ramos. “She is the right leader. … She has the talent, she has the skill.”

A native of Philadelphia, Ramos moved to Miami when she was 21 and joined the police department. She rose through the ranks to become a captain, major and division chief. She also helped grow Miami-Dade’s Youth Outreach Unit, a community-oriented policing initiative.
