This year, Reno has a new chief of police. After a selection process by city officials earlier this year, Kathryn Nance was chosen for the position, and was sworn into the role in February. Now, after her first 6 months on the job, she sits down with Renoites host Conor McQuivey for a wide ranging discussion about her career and about the work of policing, both here in Reno and nationally.
Some of the topics covered in this episode include understanding implicit bias, policies and procedures for body camera usage, what community policing is and the goals it hopes to accomplish, the differences between policing in a city like Stockton (where Nance worked for most of her career) and a city like Reno, navigating a predominately male profession as a female officer, the difference between "law enforcement" and "crime prevention," and much much more!
Renoites is free to listen to but it is NOT free to produce. It takes a significant amount of money and time to create such a frequently published and highly local show, and I strive to do it in a way that is INDEPENDENT and FINANCIALLY SUSTAINABLE.
