Elsie Scott has been named the executive director of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE).
"I hope to increase the membership by identifying cities where we don't have members," Scott said. NOBLE's members are law enforcers at the rank of lieutenant and above. Those of all ranks from all branches of criminal justice may join as associate members.
Scott, a native of Louisiana, received a doctorate in political science from Atlanta University in 1980. She moved to Washington that year to work for Howard University's Institute for Urban Affairs, and joined NOBLE in 1983 as project manager on studies of victims and racial harassment and violence. ADA Consumer Affairs Unit Honored
The Council of the District of Columbia recently recognized the Consumer Affairs Committee of Americans for Democratic Action for its efforts to alert Washingtonians to comparative price and safety of toys.
The Consumer Affairs Committee began a price survey of toys in 1970. Since then, its yearly Christmas Toy Price and Quality study has come to include analysis of more than 2,000 toys, has been used by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and has prompted the recall of some toys.
The resolution cited Ann Brown, who heads the committee; Debbie Wager and Charlye Malloy, who supervise toy testing; and Irene Rosenbloom and Pat Roth, who conduct the price surveys.
