Gordon Ramsay is a unique individual who breaks the traditional mold for law enforcement. One of the youngest police chiefs in the nation, Chief Ramsay has gotten national media attention and even received an invitation to the White House by former President Obama for his innovative and inspiring response to the black lives matter movement and protests in Wichita, KS.

He is no stranger to conflict, and has a passion for community policing that transforms the role of law enforcement as an agent of positive change.
