The Frustrating Limits of Transparency . . . Again
When I arrived in Wichita I committed to increasing transparency and changed practices such as notifying the public as soon as possible when a police officer has been arrested. Recently, I came across this blog I wrote when I was a chief in Minnesota.

Happy 45th Birthday to the EPPD!
On this date 45 years ago, then-Mayor Paul Redpath christened the first Eden Prairie squad car in front of his home.

Several years ago, I read a fantastic book on motivation-Drive. Personally, I think it’s difficult to motivate adult workers. We can […]

Things you don’t need to tell the cops when you are in a public setting
Things you don’t need to tell the cops when you are in a public setting- 1. You do not need to tell us-“I didn’t do it.” We probably don’t think that you did do it. We probably don’t know what “it” is. We assume most people we run into during the average day didn’t do […]
