We’re a little late in reporting the wonderful news of the appointment of Kelley Fraser as the new Captain of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, the most senior law enforcement post in the city.
Weho Daily hopes to have the chance to meet with her in the near future.
“The combination of Captain Fraser’s technical law enforcement experience and her strong leadership skills make her the perfect Captain for West Hollywood,” said West Hollywood City Manager Paul Arevalo in a statement. “During the extensive recruitment process, we met with a number of potential candidates. Captain Fraser’s unique qualifications make her an excellent fit to command the West Hollywood Station and we look forward to working with her in the future.”
Captain Fraser’s prior work experience includes serving as a Lieutenant for the Emergency Operations Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Office of Homeland Security; and a Lieutenant at the Temple Station.
What wasn’t mentioned in the statement was that Fraser is an open lesbian, which she made clear in public at a City Council meeting.
Weho News sat down for an extended interview with Kelley Fraser, the new Captain at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, the most senior law enforcement post in the city.
“The fact that I’m here as an openly lesbian police captain at West Hollywood Station – I understand the significance, I understand the milestone,” she said to Weho News. “I’m grateful that they had enough confidence in me to do the job – and that’s just it. I’ve been asked to do the job and I don’t take that lightly.”
