NOTE!  The LJDC meeting is rescheduled to the third Sunday this month, because of Valentine’s Day!

Our first speaker will be San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit. David Nisleit was promoted to the City of San Diego’s 35th Chief of Police on March 2, 2018. Chief Nisleit oversees the eighth largest police department in the nation. He is a native San Diegan and grew up in the Rolando Community. Chief Nisleit began his career with the San Diego Police Department in February 1988, following his father’s footsteps, retired Captain Randy Nisleit. David has worked many of the Department’s patrol commands and has extensive investigative experience. His prior assignments include Assistant Chief of Patrol Operations, Watch Commanders Office, Headquarters Front Counter, Homeless Outreach Team, Special Operations, Investigations II (Robbery, Gangs, and Homicide), field lieutenant, SWAT, Special Events, Narcotic Team 10, Sex Crimes, and Internal Affairs. He currently has a son on the force.      

Our second speaker will be Dr. Carolyn Shadle, author and nationally recognized authority on the management of veterinary businesses. She will present a description and analysis of the new book, “Caste.’  “Caste” describes a man-made social order developed to rank the value of certain groups of people. This order is based on the assumed supremacy of one group and assumed inferiority of others according to heritage, personal characteristics, religious preferences, or economic status. The superior group uses these characteristics to segregate people and assign parameters for the appropriate behaviors of each group. Carolyn, immediate past vice-president of the La Jolla Democratic Club, is active in our community and a member of the Great Books group at White Sands retirement community in La Jolla.

We expect to be hearing from County SupervisorNathan Fletcher sometime during our meeting as well.
