Episode 14 is a two-part podcast that covers the highlights of a dynamic event held on Jan. 21, 2017 – the Community Trust in Policing Forum, held at the Mexican Heritage Plaza in San Jose. The event was a collaboration between SVCF and the San Francisco 49ers and featured speeches, panel discussions and group sessions that allowed our community to debate the status of trust in policing in our community.
In Part 1, we hear from Walter Katz, independent police auditor of San Jose; Sam Liccardo, mayor of the City of San Jose; Jed York, CEO of the San Francisco 49ers; Emmett Carson, CEO and president of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation; and Chief Eddie Garcia of the San Jose Police Department.
