Chief Scott Silverii

Scott Silverii, PhD has been in law enforcement for over 22 years and since 2011 has served as chief of police in Thibodaux, LA. He has often challenged the traditions of law enforcement with progressive leadership centered on community service, accountability and an intelligence-led ideology. Having commanded every major criminal division for a nationally accredited agency, he also serves as a national subject matter expert in data-driven approaches to crime and traffic safety.

Chief Silverii, having earned a Master of Public Administration and a Doctor of Philosophy, was appointed to the IACP’s prestigious Research Advisory Committee. He was awarded NHTSA’s highest honor for public service, and recently invited by the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ Director to serve on the national Crime Indicators Working Group for assessing and revising the Uniform Crime Reporting system.
