Neighbors, June 30: Police Chief Mike Tusken: "condemn the bad behaviour and not the profession"

Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken joins us in a candid and wide-ranging conversation about policing in these challenging times: the people they want to hire - and don't want to hire these days; the outrage, sorrow and embarassment of fellow police after the death of George Floyd, and the toll the unavoidable backlash takes on officers.

Plus he talks about the social workers already embedded within the department, the importance of School Resource Officers, and how a police union can work - and not work - for a police department and the community.
