"My hope is to use what I’ve learned from the podcast to go for my doctorate on improving policing".
Erik says , social media is an underutilized tool by police. Not just police, but firefighters, DA’s, nurses, military, ambulance, teachers; front liners. This show is designed to reveal the full potential of true communication through a long discussion format. That is what this show is about. Check out his Podcast at https://twocopsonedonut.com/
