SUMMARY: In a sincere, hopeful conversation, Round Rock (Texas) police chief Allen Banks discusses implementation of community policing in Round Rock and why the police shouldn’t be the first responders for everything. Other topics include policing training, diversity in police hiring, and how to create equitable and safe communities. If you want to know how a community is changing policing right now, then this is the podcast for you.
KEY QUOTE: “You need to bring in more community policing in those areas (high crime areas) and have community members, faith based leaders, and advocates help you in policing. Not everybody goes to jail. It comes with fixing problems, taking care of broken window theories. And just the mere fact of relationships will change the quality of life and change the dynamics of (high crime) areas.”
