Christopher Hess, 42, is charged with aggravated assault by a public servant after he shot and killed 21-year old Genevive Dawes on Jan. 18, 2017 while responding to a call about a stolen car. As a social justice advocate and law enforcement expert, Sgt. Dorsey spoke alongside California Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber before the California Assembly Committee on Public Safety regarding AB392. Sgt.

For over two decades, Retired Los Angeles Police Department(LAPD) Sergeant Cheryl Dorsey worked exclusively in patrol and specialized units in all four Bureaus within the City of Los Angeles; South, Central, West and Valley. In addition to various patrol division assignments, Sgt. Dorsey was assigned to the infamous gang unit in Operations South Bureau; known as Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (C.R.A.S.H.) under the command of Police Chief Daryl F. Gates From an LAPD insider’s perspective, Sgt. Dorsey candidly discusses police culture, policy, and training as well as exposing disparities that disproportionately affect minority communities throughout the nation. As a police professional, Sgt. Dorsey introduces strategies on how to systematically attack those injustices, educate and empower listeners on how to navigate within that system, when necessary, and help change that system, when possible. The goal being for everyone to make it home safe!
