Chief Tim Longo
GUEST: Tim Longo, Chief of the City of Charlottesville Police Department.
TOPIC: Chief Longo speaks candidly about the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, the militarization of law enforcement, the use of SWAT teams, and “relational policing” in the 21st century. The events in Ferguson, Longo says, present police with “an opportunity to one, recommit to certain values, and also demonstrate our willingness to be professionals so that we never lose the legitimacy and public trust that’s so critically important for us to do our job successfully.”
