Great episode!

Very informative

I absolutely love the podcast and I am definitely grateful the LAPD finally has one. It is very educational , I’ve learned a lot of things about the department, it’s officers, it’s tactics , it’s leadership . Thanks for taking the time to make this podcast, I’m always eager for the next episode.

LAPD Family

As the wife of an LAPD officer (he’s been on the force for 24 years) I wasn’t sure what I was going to hear that he hadn’t already told me. I loved every episode that you’ve put out and can’t wait to hear more! This podcast is awesome all around. There’s no department like the LAPD, these men and women go out daily knowing what their community needs and what they expect, this isn’t a safe job regardless of where you work but, our blue family works with the worst of the worst and there’s no denying that.

What might be a good listen would be for people to hear from the family members of our officers; wives, husbands, kids,etc... I’m sure we could all learn something from one another
