The Police Podcast

The Police Podcast brings together police officers, the agencies they represent and the communities they serve. We discuss current events, social media, best practices when dealing with the police and the lives our officers live. When we aren't talking with officers, we talk to business leaders in industries that can have positive impacts on helping agencies and officers do better jobs. Experts from communications, finance, equipment and training bring their real world knowledge to help inform and educate our nation's protectors.

Yael Bartur is the Digital Strategist for the NYPD and you can bet that with 116 Twitter Accounts and a massive community she has her hands full but she takes it all in stride.

With a solid strategy and a plan for growth that includes proper training, monitoring and management of the department's social media accounts the task she has comes with a great potential for many agencies to follow. 

Yael chats about the wins, challenges and who she looks to for inspiration as she looks for new and innovative ways to promote the department and the men and women who serve and protect North America's biggest city.

Yael even teases about a test Facebook account that the department is using as the pioneer for growth on the world's biggest social network... and because you are reading this, you get to see it for yourself.

Nick Selby Talks Data...Big Data

What happens when you use data instead of anecdotes to study the information behind police shootings? You get facts and not rhetoric. You get a place to start a real conversation about situations that need a deeper look.It's amazing what Nick Selby and his team are doing with data research to get to the bottom of the real story. You can't argue with facts and physics and when those get backed up by data, you have a pretty solid foundation for understanding. 

You have to go look at the study that the team put together here:

FAN BOY ALERT!!!

I love Larry Winget. I love everything about him from his down home country southern style, to his cowboy shirts and boots, his social media use and of course his common sense approach to pretty much everything life has to throw at us. 

Larry is very candid in his time with us and admits that he is a fan of police, not a fan of people who don't like police and does a favorite police officer...his son. 

Larry is a professional speaker, author and personal development expert who has written 6 New York Times and Wall Street Journal best selling books:

Your Kids Are Your Own Fault
People Are Idiots And I Can Prove It
It's Called Work For A Reason
You're Broke Because You Want To Be
Shut Up Stop Whining And Get A Life 

and my personal favorite....

GROW A PAIR.

You can find Larry on social media through his Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, Twitter and Instagram Accounts. 

Enjoy.

Yes police fans...you read / heard / saw it right. The Police Podcast is back for it's second season.

Now I know how Netflix feels every time it rolls out a new season of House Of Cards. The anticipation is incredible, the new season drops and in 15 hours, I've binge watched every amazing moment and then I am feeling left empty and lost again.

But, not to worry...I am not dropping an entire season on you at once and then walking away. Although there are 2 older recordings ready to go, 2 new recordings ready to go and 2 new interviews scheduled to record I still believe in offering relevant content, which is timely and appropriate.

Now this episode is more of a fun one to let you know that The Police Podcast is returning so no deep thoughts, or interviews...just some music, a couple of minutes of me talking and an invite for future guests and listeners.

I'm not even sure what I'm going to call this episode...

S2.Ep1?
Ep40?
PTP39?
Ep78?

Good grief...decisions, decisions.
