Congratulations to LCOS member Bernice Torres on her promotion as the first Latina Captain in the 6th J.D., marking a significant milestone in the Unified Court System.
Captain Torres has consistently demonstrated her commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion within the court system. Her dedication is evident when she fosters connections and engages with individuals from diverse backgrounds, valuing their unique experiences and perspectives through involvement in the 6th Judicial District Task Force, Gender Fairness Committee, and Diversity Outreach, which has led her to actively participate with members of the public to bring awareness of court officer jobs in the upstate area. Let’s all congratulate Captain Torres! 🙌🏼💪🏼 #wepa#palante
