This is both a challenging time and a moment in time when that age old fight of good vs evil takes center stage. Yes, this is the moment when we can and must redefine the LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY. Perhaps some would argue that the cards have been stacked against the forces of good – but make no mistake this is the moment when ‘true leadership’ rises to the top. It’s the time when LEADERSHIP finds the courage to stand tall on principle and redefine the rules of the game.
It’s been a deadly and incredible year and the stakes have never been higher for the law enforcement community. It’s been my privilege to bring you the latest and most up to date information and insight into a profession that has been decimated these past couple of years. I started Police Radio with the intent to inform as many Americans as humanly possible about not only the dangers, but the opportunities that will arise to defend this great profession. As we open a new year, a year that will redefine the role we all play, I feel it is timely that we retitle ‘officially’ the name of our show to BLUE LIVES RADIO, The Voice of American Law Enforcement. And with that, I am truly excited to have on a real police hero, Major Travis Yates who not only speaks about Police Leadership and Courage, but a man who embodies the meaning behind those words.
In the 2017 premier episode of Blue Lives Radio, The Voice of American Law Enforcement, Show Host Randy Sutton interviews Major Travis Yates of the Tulsa OK Police Department, who is not only a well respected law enforcement trainer but the Editor and Chief of “LawOfficer.com” a well respected news source for Law Enforcement. They have an animated and revealing discussion about policing in America. Major Yates is the Director of Training, full-time police officer and has spent his career training first responders across the world. He was named the ILEETA/Law Officer Magazine International Trainer of the Year in 2008, and co-founded Vest For Life Inc in 2009.
Also in this episode a “Police Story” author tells his story of addiction and those who helped him and in his “View From The Blue” Randy gives his views on disrespecting the police. You won’t want to miss it.
