Ride Along: Reality on the Thin Blue Line, with Officer Joe Gamaldi
As the House prepares to vote on the Democrats’ police reform bill and Senate Democrats blocked Senator Tim Scott’s police reform bill from even being consider, it’s a good time to get the law enforcement perspective on these proposals from an actual police officer.
Joining us is Joe Gamaldi, the President of Houston Police Officers’ Union, Vice President of the Fraternal Order of Police, and an active member of the Houston Police Department. Officer Gamaldi still patrols the streets and knows exactly what our cops face up against every day and as the President of the HPOU has his finger on the pulse of the larger force.
Officer Gamaldi served three years in the NYPD before coming to Houston in 2008. He’s been President of Houston Police Officers’ Union since 2017 and National Vice President of the Fraternal Order of Police since 2019. Follow Officer Gamaldi on Twitter at @JoeGamaldi.
