Police Chief Bill Brooks Appointed President of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association

Bill Brooks, Chief of the Norwood Police Department in Massachusetts, was sworn in as president of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association on Thursday.

Chief Brooks has devoted much of his nearly 40-year career in law enforcement to advocating for evidence-based police practices in his home state of Massachusetts and in states and localities around the nation. He is a nationally recognized expert on eyewitness identification and, largely in partnership with the Innocence Project, has led trainings for police departments in nearly two dozen states, among them: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah, Washington and Vermont.

Chief Brooks was presented with a Champion of Justice Award in 2012 by the Innocence Network and a Civil Rights Award for Individual Achievement in 2015 by the International Chiefs of Police.
