Detroit police chief to address McCree luncheon

The Federal Bar Association, Eastern District of Michigan Chapter, will present its “2022 Wade H. McCree Jr. Luncheon for the Advancement of Social Justice” on Wednesday, February 9, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Detroit.

Detroit Police Chief James E. White will be the keynote speaker for the program. In addition, the Wade H. McCree Jr. Award for the Advancement of Social Justice will be presented.

White, a 24-year veteran at the Detroit Police Department, served as assistant chief since 2012 and in leadership positions for most of his tenure.

White led the Detroit Police Department’s efforts to be released from two decade-long federal consent agreements, which required the implementation of policies, training and processes to protect the constitutional rights of citizens DPD officers engage or detain.

White left DPD in August 2020 when he was named director of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights by the Michigan Civil Rights Commission and served as a member of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s cabinet. 

FBA members can attend the luncheon for $45 and guests can attend for $60. To register, visit and click on “calendar.”
