    ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAS???.... More like “attempted escapes” from Florence Prison in Arizona. Keyword would be “attempted ”. Failed attempts due to the efficiency of the Florence Prison staff under the leadership of men like our guest today, Director of Operations with Arizona Department of Corrections, Ernest Trujillo. This is the 2nd time Ernest Trujillo has been a guest on the podcast. Be sure to give a listen to the first podcast where Director Trujillo shares his background and the operating logistics of the Arizona Prison System.

    E15 | BRIX!

    “BRIX”…..you will no doubt hear that name again. He is the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department’s newest K-9 dog to hit the streets of Pierce County in WA State. We are confident this 17 month old police dog will be a crime fighting star because he the partnered with the K-9 Trainer himself, Deputy John Munson. The elite K-9 Unit of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department has set the standard for Police K-9 Units throughout the country. One of the reasons for this is the cutting edge training that each K-9 team receives. Our guest today is responsible for providing that training. Deputy John Munson is a 29 year veteran with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department and has spent the last 25 years as not only a K-9 handler himself, but also the K-9 Trainer. On today’s podcast Deputy Munson shares some of his unique experiences not only with the K-9 Unit, but also as a member of the SWAT team.
