In the first 24 hours after a jury found Derek Chauvin guilty of murdering George Floyd, there were 6 fatal police shootings across the United States. All of the victims were people of color with the exception of one. The conviction of one officer did not mitigate the stark reality of police violence, particularly against black and brown people. We've heard cries for police reform, but what are police officers saying about the perceived increase in violence? What is the impact of the Chauvin verdict on police morale? What is the impact on those officers who take the oath to "protect and serve" seriously? And what is it about law enforcement that police want the community to understand? Hear a candid conversation with Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone, Chesapeake Police Chief Kelvin Wright, and Durham, North Carolina retired Police Captain and Consultant Daniel Edwards who specializes in de-escalation training for law enforcement professionals.
