#15: You Want Better Police Training. Great, But What Does 'Better' Mean?


With every shooting incident, study, and official statement, one demand always appears: better training for police.  It’s easy to say and a no brainer to support, but what does that actually mean? 

In this episode, we hear from Deputy Commissioner Tracie Keesee, the person in charge of making these changes in the New York Police Department – the big dog of American law enforcement.  She tells us what she has in mind, and what it’s been like to be a woman of color going from a rookie in the Denver Police Department to the top of the NYPD.  Deputy Commissioner Keesee was also one of the founders of the Center for Policing Equity.
