The first of this season’s new episodes features Brody Young, a Utah state parks law enforcement ranger who was shot nine times and left to die in a remote location and is back on the job today. Ranger Young speaks candidly about the incident, his recovery, professional resilience, and how the experience has changed his life. Watch the episode here.
New episodes of What’s New in Blue will be released monthly. Previous episodes are also available, addressing topics such as women in policing, law enforcement use of drones, officer suicide prevention, tourniquet use, heart disease among officer, and drug-endangered children. View episodes of What’s New in Blue.
Ranger Young has also recorded an episode of The Beat, which can be listened to here.
At heart, Mike Chitwood is a hard-charging cop who got his start chasing criminals through Philadelphia’s subway system and now serves as the elected Sheriff of Volusia County, Florida. He is a dichotomy, viewed equally as a reformer and as someone whose style and results endear him to traditionalists. Sheriff Chitwood joins The Beat to discuss his unyielding approach toward fighting crime, strategic improvements being implemented in his agency, effective community engagement, and contemporary issues in policing.
Listen to new episodes of The Beat.
