Anthony W. Conyers, a seven year veteran, was promoted from patrolman to sergeant, the first African-American to do so in the Department. He said it was an honor to advance in the Department. “It is an honor and great personal achievement,” says Conyers.
First, yesterday was a great day of personal achievement for Sergeant Conyers and his family. However, something even more significant occurred, that is “change,” says Sanders. “Studies have shown that the majority of children will be of color. Certainly, in less than 100 years, the growing number of Blacks, Hispanics and Asians will together comprise the new majority,” says Sanders.
