Dawn Delfino ’99 becomes first woman to make sergeant in Gilroy Police Department’s 62-year history

Dawn Delfino has long solved problems and blazed trails. At Norwich University, she joined the women’s hockey club that preceded the women’s varsity ice hockey program. In almost 20 years of policing, she drew on conflict resolution skills to earn Officer of the Year recognition certificates from California’s state Senate and Assembly and the U.S. Congress.

On Nov. 1, Delfino, a 1999 Norwich graduate, earned important stripes, becoming the first woman sergeant in the Gilroy, California, police department’s 62-year history. (She spent 11 months as an acting sergeant before her promotion.)

Slavery was outlawed in New York by 1827, but the city’s Black residents could never relax, historian Dr. Jonathan Daniel Wells writes. A collection of slave catchers and police officers in New York City were lying in wait to snatch children and adults and sell them into slavery.

Wells, a historian and professor of Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan’s Residential College, spends his latest book, “The Kidnapping Club: Wall Street, Slavery, and Resistance on the Eve of the Civil War” describing the harrowing tale of corrupt police and the people they harmed. At 6 p.m., Tuesday, Wells will discuss his book and the history in a virtual talk sponsored by the Norwich Humanities Initiative.
