How Law Enforcement Can EVOLVE in the Wake of Floyd and Chauvin
At the time of recording this episode, the verdict of the Derek Chauvin trial came out just a couple of days before. My guest, Patrick Fitzgibbons and I were chatting via LinkedIn about how the law enforcement profession can move forward after this verdict. And we decided to jump on and record a podcast episode to discuss just that. Our intention here is not to create further political dialogue about this topic, but rather to discuss a viable and healthy path forward. We also delve into a deep discussion about officers transitioning from law enforcement and how they might want to approach this if they are considering a shift.

This presents a tremendous opportunity to host your own show and communicate directly with your audience and community like never before seen in history. Today we chat about podcasting and how you can use it to connect with your community and build trust.
