WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Patricia D. Norris, chief of police and director of public safety at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU), has been named the first female and first African American to serve as president of the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police (NCACP).

Norris has been at the university since 2008. She previously served as chief of police for the City of Winston-Salem for four years and was on the force for 31 years. A life-long resident of Winston-Salem, Norris graduated from R. J.
