If I could pick any job in the world to do I would overhaul the way police departments interact with the public. While I understand that traffic codes must be enforced, I believe too many officers will find any minor infraction or suspected infraction in order to make contact with someone. I believe in the old motto “to protect and serve” and believe that our police departments should fully embrace community policing. I would love to work with departments to help them incorporate community policing as their operating policy by educating them on the theories of community policing and how to structure the department to accommodate community policing.
