What is the Bank of Trust? | Saint Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell

They are known as the “Twin Cities.” But when it comes to how some in the community view law enforcement, Minneapolis and St. Paul couldn’t be further apart. In 2020, America witnessed a tragedy unfold in Minneapolis, triggering weeks of riots and civil unrest. Just a few miles east, the St. Paul police chief refused to allow one incident be used to define our profession. On this episode of the Blue View, National President Patrick Yoes is joined by Todd Axtell, Chief of Police for the City of Saint Paul, Minnesota, where he leads an agency with 820 employees. As the oldest police department in the State, the St. Paul Police Department has become known for delivering trusted service with respect—every day, without exception. Thanks to Chief Axtell’s “bank of trust” philosophy—one which views every call for service, conversation, and community interaction as an opportunity to make a deposit—the department has been able to maintain its stellar reputation and strengthen its ties despite the historic civil unrest, a global pandemic, and several high-profile crises. ⬛️ ⬛️ ⬛️  SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLUE VIEW PODCAST Blue View Podcast ➡️ https://blue-view.castos.com/ Apple Podcasts ➡️ https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/blue-view-by-the-fraternal-order-of-police-fop/id1609211746 Spotify ➡️ https://open.spotify.com/show/3OZzhTEcwf3e2y0sPqdsew Amazon ➡️ https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/aad56de4-4a9a-46d2-a71f-ba46ea487797/blue-view-by-the-fraternal-order-of-police-fop  ...

What's Next for America's Law Enforcement Officers? | Jim Pasco

The National Fraternal Order of Police spent all of last year working cooperatively with key Members of Congress to develop meaningful criminal justice and police reform. Our efforts were focused on the need for absolute protection of officers’ due process rights and strictly adherence to the “objectively reasonable” standard for use of force. These efforts could not overcome the political headwinds in Congress and now, potential Executive action is being contemplated amidst the background of a national spike in violent crime and violence targeting law enforcement officers. Today we will hear from National Fraternal Order of Police Executive Director Jim Pasco about what is being done in Washington, DC to reform policing so that the partnership between our communities and the officers that protect them can be restored. Watch This Episode ➡️  https://youtu.be/xyJ0TFIBfLc  ⬛️ ⬛️ ⬛️ ⬛️ The Blue View is a weekly podcast presented by the National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). We are the world’s oldest and largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 364,000 members in more than 2,200 lodges. Make sure to tune in each week to hear from the country's top law enforcement experts, elected officials, and other notable leaders as they'll share their perspective and insight into the issues facing America's law enforcement.
