(RALEIGH) – Newly selected Raleigh police chief Cassandra Deck-Brown will be attendance at tonight's State of the Union speech as the guest of Congressman David Price.

"I look forward to hosting Chief Deck-Brown at the State of the Union on Tuesday night and discussing how Congress can help address juvenile crime and support local police and first responders," Rep. Price said in a statement. "As a father and a grandfather, I am very interested in exploring new and innovative partnerships between Congress and local law enforcement to keep our schools, neighborhoods, and communities safe and supportive places for our young people."

Deck-Brown, the first African-American woman to hold the post, said decreasing juvenile crime will be among her top priorities as police chief.
