Title: Black History Month: Chief Boykins
Original dimensions: 36in x 24in at 300ppi
Designed using: Adobe Photoshop, flatbed scanner, Nikon D80 camera


This image was designed for Black History Month. The staff member who requested this piece wanted to feature one of the Department's first African-American officers alongside the Department's first African-American Chief of Police, Darryl Boykins. An alternate version of this file was made using an older image of the SBPD badge but an updated image of Chief Boykins. Ultimately, this file was used.

The final product was printed via an HP plotter onto heavyweight white paper and mounted onto foam board for use in the SBPD's main lobby display case.

The photographs are file photos from the South Bend Police Department's digital records.
