Please join us for Capital Tiger Bay Club on Tuesday, Feb. 21, for our next program, featuring a discussion on public safety with Leon County Sheriff Walt McNeil and Tallahassee Police Chief Lawrence Revell.
Leon County Sheriff Walt McNeil was elected to this position in 2016, continuing his distinguished 40-year career as a public servant. Prior to his position as sheriff, McNeil commanded the fight against crime in Tallahassee as Police Chief, led two state agencies under Gov. Charlie Crist, and advised on law enforcement strategies and tactics to the Obama White House and other governments around the globe. McNeil is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, former Florida Corrections Secretary, and past president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Sheriff McNeil dedicates his life in service to the community in more ways than one-giving his time and talents to organizations that make a difference and being an active member of New Mount Zion AME Church.
Tallahassee Chief of Police Lawrence Revell has held this position since January 6, 2020, after serving in the Tallahassee Police Department for 28 years, during which he earned two Medals of Bravery and two Meritorious Service Awards.
