The Founders

Lafayette Group was founded in 1994 by Mr. Scott Green and the Hon. Charles B. Dewitt.  Coming from different political parties and backgrounds, the two found a shared mission in bringing much needed Federal support and technology to the public safety community.  


Over twenty-five years, the co-founders steered Lafayette Group to become the well-known and highly respected company that it is today.  From their work in support of standing up the Department of Homeland Security in the aftermath of September 11th 2001 to advising America’s largest city police chiefs on strategies ranging from gun violence to immigration, the founders have repeatedly been recognized for their impact on the safety and security of the Nation.  Through it all they have passed on one central tenet that guides Lafayette Group today – do what is right for the men and women of public safety.

Chuck DeWitt
Co-Founder

A former deputy sheriff who studied criminology at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, the career of Chuck DeWitt has spanned four decades of public service. A graduate of Stanford University in California, Mr. DeWitt rose from deputy sheriff to Director of the Justice Division for Santa Clara County. Mr. DeWitt left his post in Silicon Valley to become a Fellow at the U.S. Department of Justice in 1984, where he was responsible for corrections and law enforcement programs.  He was assigned to the White House in 1989 to investigate terrorist threats and review border security. Mr. DeWitt was then nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate to become Director of the National Institute of Justice. Mr. DeWitt developed and authorized many policy and technology projects still underway at the U.S. Department of Justice, ranging from community policing to DNA evidence systems. He approved hundreds of grants to law enforcement agencies to demonstrate innovations in policing that are operational today. Programs to strengthen the Nation’s justice system included joint efforts with the FBI, Secret Service and interagency agreements with National Laboratories to foster new technologies, communications, and information systems. 

“We have relied on him for over 20 years, which have been marked by his service, leadership and friendship to each and every one of us…. He has always advocated for our needs and priorities and been a leader on national issues….All of the policies we have released over the last couple of decades have been a result of Chuck’s initiative and guidance. The influence and impact MCCA has today is in large part thanks to Chuck’s work and commitment.”
MCCA President and Houston, TX Police Chief Art Acevedo

Scott Green
Co-Founder

Scott Green’s 40 year career was likewise rooted in public service, but it was his work on the football field as an NFL official (eventually spanning 20 years and 3 Super Bowls) that led him off of Capital Hill to create Lafayette Group.  Mr. Green’s public safety career began as a probation officer during which time he received a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice Administration from Arizona State University. He went on to serve in the San Diego, CA court system, before coming to Washington DC to serve over a decade as a staff assistant to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee for then Sen. Joseph Biden. His primary duties with the Senate Judiciary Committee involved issues and legislation impacting public safety services. During his tenure, Mr. Green was instrumental in writing legislation that focused attention and resources on improvements in public safety technology and communications.

"You know that you’re in trouble when the staff that works with you is as loyal to the constituency that they serve as they are to you.  My staff has been that loyal to the police community for a long, long time.  They have done an incredible job….The people who have worked with me on this issue have been emotionally invested.  Scott Green was emotionally invested.  It wasn’t just a job for him; it was an emotional investment….” 
Former Vice President Joseph Biden
