Thanks for checking out this web extra from Jim Niedelman’s conversation with Chuck Wexler, the executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum.

They had a very in-depth discussion that we simply didn’t have enough time to bring to you on “4 the Record.”

In this segment, they talk about how to improve the reputation for police where people don’t trust officers, as well as what politicians are getting right and wrong when it comes to police reform.

“If you’re going to hold the police to this higher standard, you better train them and select them better,” Wexler said.
