Captain Cornell Avery Scott (affectionately known as 'Sonny' by his family and 'Scotty' by his friends) was born on August 16, 1935 in Jersey City, NJ to the late Samuel C. and Susan Pearson Scott. Scotty was the youngest of three sons born to this union.

Scotty graduated from Henry Snyder High School and attended John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After standing in for a blind date arranged by his mother for his brother HB who failed to show, he met the woman who would become his wife, Cynthia. They married in 1957 and enjoyed a wonderful, loving life together.

In 1965, Scotty joined the Jersey City Police Department (JCPD) and was a patrolman assigned to the 4th Precinct (later referred to as the West District). In 1967, Scotty was selected for the Officer Friendly Program, a model program to acquaint children with law enforcement officials as part of a community relations campaign, and began visiting the Jersey City District Schools speaking to students about 'safety and stranger danger'. In 1971, Scotty was promoted to Sergeant on Patrol and two years later, was assigned to the Internal Affairs Unit, a body of staff responsible for investigating the conduct of other officers.

In 1976, Scotty was promoted to Lieutenant and became the first Black Commander of the JCPD Internal Affairs Unit. Twelve years later, he was promoted to the rank of Captain and in 1990, he was asked to command the West District. He was the first Black Commander of the West District and under his command, the District received many commendations from the Mayor and the community. He served in the role until his retirement from the Department in 2000.

Following his retirement, he was called upon by the Jersey City Administration to assist in the 9/11 Recovery efforts. Scotty was a founding member of the Charlie Mays Scholarship Foundation and in 2015, he was inducted into the Trailblazers Pioneers of Jersey City. Scotty loved flying, boating, photography, music, his family and was an extensive world traveler, exploring dozens of countries with his wife by his side.
