A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police.

In 2012, way before Ferguson and too many other tragedies in policing and before the release of the President’s 21st Century Task Force, I did a short (18 minute) interview with Neil Heinen in Madison.

I hope it clarifies why I write this blog, why I am so passionate about policing and why I believe that the only way police will be able to improve is from the inside out — and that’s LEADERSHIP.

During the interview address the reasons why I wrote “Arrested Development,” the four obstacles which prevent police from continuously improving, and seven necessary steps toward improvement.

I also talk about how I visualize the police role in a our society and why national reform is needed.
