Each week we look at a different facet of what being prepared looks like in the real world of everyday. It is absolutely awesome to be back with you guys here for another adventure of discovery and obtaining the superpower of common sense. Today I want to bring in another expert to help us gain an additional approach to this information.
Today I have the honor of introducing:
Chip was born and raised in Tampa, Florida in 1962 and graduated from the University of South Florida in 1983 with a B.A. in Criminal Justice. He worked with the Tampa Police Department for 30 years (1983 – 2013) and retired as a detective. Chip is best known for his work in Organized Crime, Public Corruption, Adult Entertainment, and being a Whistleblower. He co-founded the LEOAFFAIRS.COM law enforcement website in 2002 which sold in 2014. Chip created the LEO Round Table law enforcement talk show on 12/14/2015 of which he is currently the host.
- Let’s get the conversation started by talking about the LEO Round Table. What is it, and what could private citizens garner from it?
- What about misconceptions? Many people have multiple misconceptions about the responsibility of peace officers during emergencies or local disasters. What would you say is the role of an officer during a disaster event?
- One of the main points I wanted to talk about was the idea of defensive shooting. Thinking about the rise in “new” gun owners, does this influence law enforcement’s response to private residences?
- One that same thought, are there some general procedures for officers when securing a scene following a defensive shooting event?
- Most people don’t understand the levels within a local law enforcement organization. From the officers who respond to an event, the detectives who investigate, the district attorneys who prosecute the crime, and the judicial function that decides the outcome, including the jury members. How do you describe this establishment to the general population?
- In speaking about mindset, what are some of the tools that officers use to focus their concentration on helping the community while being concerned about their own families at the same time?
As always I want to open the floor for you to pass along any type of information you would offer the general population, as well as any information about contacting you or your show.
