Supt. Eddie Johnson is a 27 year veteran of the Chicago police force. He was named Superintendent in 2016. A native Chicagoan, he joined the Department in May of 1988 and has served the majority of his career within the Detective Division and Gang/Tactical units and Patrol Bureau where he rose to the rank of Chief. Supt. Johnson is a member of the Executive Board of NOBLE’s Chicago Chapter, the St. Jude Board of Directors, and the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation Assistance Committee.
Tom Dart was elected Cook County Sheriff in 2006. He has brought an aggressive yet innovative approach to law enforcement. His willingness to take bold steps that yield substantive results have earned the department accolades from organizations and elected officials from across the nation and from the halls of Congress. Bold steps led Time magazine to designate Dart as one of the 100 Most Influential People In The World in 2009. The magazine pointed to his impressive stands in the midst of the nationwide foreclosure crisis, as well as his efforts to infiltrate the world of online prostitution and human trafficking.
Rev. Michael Pfleger is the pastor of St. Sabina Church in Chicago’s Auburn-Gresham neighborhood. Since 1968, Father Pfleger has lived and ministered in the African-American community on both the west and south sides of Chicago. He spent two summers working in a Native American community in Oklahoma, and did his seminary internship as a Chaplin at Cook County Jail and at Precious Blood Catholic Church, both in Chicago. In the course of his extensive and active ministry, Father Pfleger has been recognized for his commitment to equality and passionate stance against injustice.
