Do the police actually prevent crime? - Episode 2
Let me ask you a serious question, "Do you believe the police actually prevent crime?" Or I'll ask you this way, "Should the police take all of the credit or blame for crime in their cities?"
Our panel for this episode tackles this question head-on. For this topic, I wanted a mix of academia, practitioners, and a police beat reporter to dissect this from a few different angles. So, I invited Dr. Alex Piquero, a
University of Texas at Dallas Professor of Criminology. Dr. Piquero also serves on the Dallas Mayor's Task Force on Crime and has a national profile for his expertise and insight. WFAA TV Investigative Reporter Tanya Eiserer has covered the Dallas Police Department and policing since 1996 and has a unique perspective on crime in the big city. Dan Carolla is a former Commander in the Dallas Police Department and now serves as the Chief of Police in Lake Dallas, a Dallas suburb. Chief Carolla has vast knowledge and experience in Operations so his insight is invaluable. Together, we had some very interesting dialogue about crime and whether or not the police prevent crime.
You will be surprised at some of the different views shared in this episode.
Thanks for tuning in!
Jeff Halstead- Episode 1
Harvey's first guest is Jeff Halstead. Halstead retired as a Deputy Chief in the Phoenix Police Department and then went on to lead the Ft. Worth Police Department as their Chief of Police. He now serves as the CEO of Evertel, a secure messaging company for first responders.
In this episode, you will hear Halstead's encounters with the police as a young 19 year involving him and his sister that caused him to hate the police. It wasn't until years later that a another police officer changed his attitude and eventually went on to have a successful police career at the highest levels. Halstead turned his negative experiences into something positive for victims of domestic violence.
There are great leadership nuggets throughout the show that will help you. Also, Jeff discusses Texas SB 944 and other similar bills across the country that affect our profession! If you are a police leader, you need to hear this! And we will always end the show with an Excellence in Policing Officer exemplifying the very best in our profession. Huge props to California Highway Patrol Officer Rodriguez!
