Do you feel that the world is burning around you!
If you watch the news and/or follow the media you may believe law enforcement officers are slaughtering innocent citizens on a daily basis. The fact is this: it just isn’t true.
Most people, including our glorious media and politicians, have no clue what are the critical elements of use-of-force policies our law enforcement follows. They also have no clue how these are applied on a daily basis. I guarantee you will have a very different view after listening to Patrick and me. We’re both former law enforcement officers, and will share the hard facts.
Warning: This episode contains explicit language.
Patrick is a retired law enforcement officer with approximately 23 years of experience. He holds an MBA in business and an MA in organizational leadership. Patrick is a part-time professor in higher education and is dedicated to coaching and mentoring the next generation of law enforcement professionals.
Patrick enjoys spending time with his wife Jennifer and their children, outdoor activities and of course, being the host of CJEvolution.
