Special Edition: ‘Black & Blue’ - Police Sgt. & Social Advocate

• 9 min

After another week of protests stemming from a white police officer shooting a black man, today’s "Special Edition Saturday" shares the perspective of someone who knows what it’s like to be both a police sergeant who patrols the streets and a mother who worries for her four black sons. Retired Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey is an acclaimed author of the autobiography, Black and Blue, and a 20-year veteran of the LAPD. Today, she shares her experience from within the third largest local law enforcement agency in the country, and she gives her thoughts on  recent calls to defund police. We know there’s a lot of debate about some of these issues, and this is only one person’s experience and opinion. We hope her perspective, as both a police expert and social justice advocate, will add to that ongoing conversation. Be sure to tune-in again each weekday (M-F) for our regular episodes to get quick, unbiased news roundups in 10 minutes!
