In this episode, Jason and Andrew use the recent situation in Forest Lake, MN to discuss whether it is advantageous to have local police or county police (if you were only to have one). In Forest Lake, the city council voted to disband the local PD, in favor of using the Washington County Sheriff’s office. The city council quickly reversed their decision after a huge uproar in the community. We dig in and discuss what we feel caused this, and why it is imperative that a city council communicate with its residents instead of making decisions in a silo. This is a conversation that has been occurring in more and more communities. Make sure you know both sides of this argument before you have explain your views.
