Today’s guest is Henrico police Chief Eric English. Chief English has been Henrico’s Chief for just over a year, and before that he was the chief in Harrisonburg, Virginia. And before THAT, he was with the Richmond Police Department from 1989 until 2018, where he retired as a Deputy Chief.
Chief English and I talk about his experiences with the three police agencies, his views on George Floyd in Minneapolis and his advice for people who may be considering law enforcement as a career choice.
We also talk about race relations, though not just between police officers and the community they’ve sworn to protect. Chief English talks about why he thinks people of the same race may choose to congregate with people who look like they do.
I hope you enjoy the interview.
