- Topic List:
Community policing – how and why it works.
- Shortage of applicants to police and sheriff’s positions due in part to a fear of negative feedback because of our recent culture of cop hating.
- Body Cameras and how our local force will have a few, but also why its more difficult to implement than most people think. There has to be storage for all the footage – digital footage.
- Shortage of officers in the jail. Sheriff Easter came in and cleared out the bad elements working in the jail. Cleaned it up both physically and politically and criminally.
- There is a mental health wing in the jail now – in conjunction with our local mental health agencies, there is now after care for anyone jailed who also have mental health issues.
- Battling K2 and meth in Wichita and surrounding areas.
- The Department of Children and Families (DCF) and how it connects to human trafficking and where the fault lies in some of the mess with DCF.
- There is so much more that get covered during these 3 segments with Sheriff Easter! Watch and listen above.
