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.

Two things drove the Internet yesterday...llamas and a dress. Not since Monika Lewinski have we talked so much about a blue dress...or was it a white dress?

The evidence is in and the fact is everyone is right, until all the information has been presented.

I got to thinking why so many people see this dress differently. I clearly saw it as the correct color and then I realized; we all have filters.

Filters determine everything we see. Filters alos come from many places:

  • Our experiences
  • Our perceptions
  • Our education
  • Our upbringing
  • Our soci-economic place
  • Our bias'

Before we make decisions based just on our own experiences, think how awesome it would be to make decisions based on all the information available. 

Empathy then has a chance to take hold and real change can happen.

The dress is definitely two colors although there is a huge argument over which two colors it is. The reason is the filters...remove the filters and we all see things the same.
