Ret. Sgt. Lonny Blackett was the first Black police officer in the city of Brampton (Peel Regional Police Service). He spent over three decades serving his community as a constable and sergeant, and even after retirement he is still finding ways to give back to those in the law enforcement profession.

In this episode of Blue Line, The Podcast, Ret. Sgt. Lonny Blackett joined Blue Line editor Brittani Schroeder to discuss his career, the changes he saw throughout his time as an officer, and the importance of ongoing training and education for those in the law enforcement industry.
