VOTE Wayne P. Harris
For NOBLE National Second Vice President
“I was brought into law enforcement by chance. Approached for an internship at the Rochester Police Department, my acceptance was contingent upon taking and passing the police exam. It has been a decision that I have never regretted.
In my over 30 years of experience, I have strived to help the community, especially the youth. I see myself in them, a once young man getting into mischief and trouble. I was fortunate enough to have people looking out for me, and now I want to look out for them.
What drew me to NOBLE is their commitment to the community. Our mission, “To ensure equity in the administration of justice in the provision of public service to all communities, and to serve as the conscience of law enforcement by being committed to justice by action”, encapsulates my philosophy of policing and my understanding of what is necessary for our communities to be healthy.”
“My philosophy on public service is based on accountability, collaboration, and equity. I believe law enforcement agencies and the citizens they serve are accountable to each other and for the welfare of their community. Problems don’t get solved in silos. They are solved through a cooperative collaboration between all aspects of the community. I firmly believe that the administration of justice must be equitable to all.
As a servant leader, I have been and remain committed to demonstrating integrity in all that I do. When elected, I will uphold that standard as NOBLE’s National Second Vice President.”
“The reality of policing is that no agency has the resources to accomplish everything they are called to do. I believe successful policing only occurs when the relationship between the community and their police agencies is strong. Cooperation, collaboration, and communication between both sides are essential components of a healthy society, and they are only established through engagement.
Police and communities must proactively develop strategies and mutually address the quality-of-life issues that impact everyone. Moreover, through engagement, both sides will develop a full understanding of each other. The community will have a thorough understanding of what policing entails, and the police will be in a better position to assist their neighbors when they have a thorough understanding of how their municipalities developed.”
