Norman H. Stamper
National City, California
Retired police chief Norman Stamper has long been committed to developing ties between police, the community and other agencies – including Boys & Girls Clubs. Before becoming Seattle’s chief of police in 1994, then-lieutenant Stamper introduced the nation’s first community-oriented policing program in San Diego. His academic career is equally distinguished: he holds a master’s in criminal justice and a doctorate in leadership and human behavior. Stamper still remembers the National City Boys & Girls Club as a refuge from a difficult home life; it was the “ticket to love, to nurturing, to limit-setting.”
