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.

Also in this episode, I open by sharing the Smart Squad App that has been created by Faction Four System Inc.

This platform and its technology adaptation for police is a game changer for any police department that is looking to manage resources more effectively with increased efficiency. 

The Lethbridge Police Department is one of the agencies using the Smart Squad App and you can see how they are using it and what their officers think about it in this video that was produced by the LPS.

Chase Daniels is the Assistant Executive Director of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office working under the leadership of Sheriff Chris Nocco. 

Chase's portfolio includes communications, social media and legislative affairs...and a few 'other things." 

You may recognize the Pasco County Sheriff's Office for their work with the #9PMRoutine and the #LivePD broadcasts, but what you might not recognize is the excellent social media strategy that has positioned the Pasco County Sheriff's Office to be one of the best social media programs representing law enforcement. 

Chase is quick to point out that while he plays a part in it, the greatness of the social media presence begins with Sheriff Nocco and spans to include a team of dedicated personnel that believes in being transparent, open and connected to their community. 

You can connect with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office here:

Today I'm joined by my good friend, Chief Billy Grogan of the Dunwoody Police Department in Georgia.

Chief Grogan is talking leadership and how he is giving back to the future leaders of law enforcement with his new venture, "Top Cop Leadership".

Chief Grogan shares what it takes in the current day of policing what it takes to be a top cop and how he can help you get there with his view from a man that has risen to the top level of policing serving not only as a chief but every rank needed to get there including his time as the President of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police.
