27 Aug Engaging the community and innovative policing, Chuck McPhilamy of Marietta City Police
Chuck McPhilamy makes an impassioned plea to have those tough conversations between the community and the police. Marietta Police Department has invested into training above what is required to help police deal with growing problems.
For example, every officer went through a 40 hour crisis intervention training (CIT). That training is a game changer for everyone involved. From the officer who does not know what it is like to hear voices, to the citizen with the issue that gets to see these officers face-to-face to the loved ones of the mentally ill that do not want to see their loved ones hurt.
Get involved though the pastor’s police academy to the citizen police academy, there are ways to learn more about the police in Marietta.
