She will be missed by (the police department) & her loss will be felt in the community she served.
According to station WFAA, Roberts-Joseph also organized the annual Juneteenth festival at the museum, commemorating the June 19, 1865, date when Union soldiers delivered news to Southern slaves that Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
