004. Public safety & COVID19 with Police Chief Doug Shoemaker of Grand Junction
Join Law Talk Colorado news anchor Michael Moran as he visits with Grand Junction Police Chief Doug Shoemaker about the challenges and incident management approach taken by the Grand Junction Police Department dealing with the social and public impacts of COVID19. One of many advantages of podcasting is the ability to interview magazine style, which allows us the opportunity to get to know the legal experts as they share relevant aspects of their own stories. For example, we learn in this visit with the Chief that prior to joining the Grand Junction Police Department, he spent most of his life and career in Missouri, including as Incident Commander for the 2014 peaceful NAACP protest march in Ferguson following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. He and his wife spent many summers in Colorado and have family in the state, "so, when this opportunity came up," the Shoemakers decided they were ready. "This is our home now," he says. Thank you for listening!
