In this “Dream” episode of the podcast Jaime and Kevin look at what they think some effective changes to the current standard of police around the country could be if there were no limits on funding or resources. What would it look like, if there were no roadblocks to a more perfect law enforcement agency? They discuss changes to training, supervision, and a few other items that could lead to a better society and they hope you enjoy. 

Their expertise in regards to being a police officer or working with law enforcement? Anecdotal observation.

Their qualifications to discuss the topic? Random life experience and caffeination during recording sessions.

Basically, anything they discuss? Don’t take their word for it - but they hope you enjoy the show!
