Special Interview With Local Law Enforcement To Air On Cruisin' 1430

March 13, 2018



I had the opportunity to interview four members of the law enforcement community who have had pretty significant roles in events involving police and tragic local events. Aurora Police Chief Nick Metz, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock, Police Psychologist, Dr. Sara Garrido, and Aurora Police Department Wellness Officer Mike Pitrusu sat with me to talk about the impact of three recent officer deaths on the local law enforcement community and how their teams are responding. We also discussed how policing has changed and how relationships with the community have changed, in a positive way, as a result of all this. It is a pretty insightful half-hour and I think everyone in our community will learn from it.

Aurora Police Chief, Nick Metz, Tweeted about the interview. 

This special interview will air Sunday morning, March 18th at 6:00am as part of Colorado Today on Cruisin' 1430.
