"C. Welcome back. You are listening to steal talking. And as promised my first guest joining me tonight. Our police police are involved in a police departments. And let me tell you a little bit. Well, what we're going to talk about tonight police recruit numbers are are essay loss totals in some areas in a decade. So how do police departments overcome negative stereotypes that are often portrayed in the news to get new recruits? Well, joining me to discuss that and so much more as Mary Nash. And she is the deputy chief of the Saint Paul beliefs police department where she has worked tirelessly to help build a department with new recruits through various strategies over the years as well as Mike aflame who is the deputy director of public safety for the city of Richfield police department Richfield actually has a long has been, you know, had a long history of a strong and well diversified law enforcement unit. So welcome to you both Mary and Mike. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. Mike, you they're great. I'll say let's just jump right in Mary. What all does your job as deputy chief of Saint Paul police department entail. For me in particular, I oversee the support services division. So that's the training unit technology unit, the building maintenance employee assistance program the fleet management. So all those things that hold up the rest of the police department so support services, meaning that we support all the other functions. Whether it's the patrol officers or the major crimes investigation parts of things. And when you say, you support them in what way? So the the the fleet unit the cars, they drive on the street making sure that they have the the car the building maintenance unit, which making sure this time of year that there's heating all the buildings air conditioning in the summer that the buildings would clean and presentable the training unit the first line and given our skill cups. The skills that they need to get through the their career in law enforcement. It has that job as deputy chief has been expanded over the years because I have to tell you. That's not what I remember a deputy chief doing that's a huge job. Well, we have several divisions with deputy chief. So we have deputy chief that oversees the patrol division the guys and the gals out on the street that are out there in the cold and the rain tonight in the colds and last week, we have a deputy chief that oversees the major crimes division, which is the investigative division. Okay. We'll soon have a community engagement division. So when is that going to happen? Oh somewhere over the next couple months. Taking a look at how do we do things more efficiently? And and and better all right and Mike Flaherty who is deputy director of public safety for the city of Richfield police department. Same question to you what what all does your job entail. So on a smaller scale in what Saint Paul has. I'm the deputy chief for the for our police department. So I have three direct reports. But my direct reports are all lieutenants in each one of my lieutenants has kind of the same job duties that I'm Mary was just talking about. So I have an administrative Lieutenant does our training our community outreach. Those are really the two main functions there patrol Lieutenant handles everything related to our patrol division. And then Lieutenant Joel Griffin is in charge of our investigative unit. And within our investigative unit, we have general investigations, we have our school resource officers. Are there we ever narcotics unit? So I'm really responsible for the police department. When you look at our PD does every each each police department in you know, all of the areas here in the twin cities. Metro area. Do do they have the choice of how they define a deputy chief, do, you know, Mike? Yeah. Yup. Yup. You know, I look back at our history. And we didn't have one for a while. We had that rank structures really up to your, you know, your leaders you clinical leaders and your police chief. But for years when I was coming up we had captains two captains and one was administrative in one was over patrol. So yeah, I think I think chiefs get to decide kind of how they want their department, Saddam. Now, Mary I just mentioned that you have worked tirelessly to help build a department with new recruits through various strategies, can you tell us more about the strategies? Well, a couple of things that we've done in the last year. Is is holding. Several women's recruitment events. We hope to events last year a couple of weeks ago. We're just told our I twenty nineteen event before our police test, we hold orientation sessions so that we can answer any questions that people come in. That are signed up particular test answer questions about our department about the testing process same with the women's recruitment talking about that career in law enforcement and what? Where people can expect out of the career. Well, you know, she'll let a Brundage, you know, her she's been working with you going into some of the beauty salons working trying to get people women to kind of look at this as a career move. What have you found out so far? Well, one of the things women coming into law enforcement, those numbers have dropped in recent years. And so right now, it's really important to go out and generate that interest and talk to young girls. Young women about a career in law enforcement sharing experiences that I've had that other women in our department of had the opportunity that we've had especially in larger department. So it's important to be able to be out in the community and answering the questions that young girls young women have and not just that. But just anybody that's interested in law enforcement. I find when we're at events when we've done our orientation sessions that, you know, women men. They have questions they want to understand more about the job and more about the challenges that we have currently in the job that our recruitment organization session last week. A lot of the. People that attended had questions of what what was your biggest challenge coming into the job? What were the things that you didn't expect that you had to go through a lot of the women will ask about the challenges sometimes about what I what I've had to do to overcome some of those. So especially in our women's recruitment event. We have a lot of the women that are already on our police department talk about the pathway into policing. What we find through those stories is we start to release relate on a personal level level with these young girls. So by sharing our challenges are experiences are pathway into policing. We we give hope and we give competence to the women that are sitting out there warranting a career in law enforcement, but not maybe having a confidence in that moment. Or maybe just having some uneasiness about it. And and what is the percentage of women on the same? Saint Paul police force. I think we're somewhere around thirteen to sixteen percent. We have almost one hundred women out of the six hundred and thirty officers on our department. Wow. That's amazing. Mike are you seeing about the same number out of forty five were authorized Forty-five sworn and we have nine officers. Right. So are you also working to get more women involved? I we don't have anything really directed towards women. Specifically, we've been more focused on diversity were we've been really focusing on people with language skills. Typically Spanish we have between sixteen and twenty percent Hispanics in Richfield in our demographic. So we've really been focusing on that demographic and and working in that area. But with that said nine women on our departments more than we've ever had in our history. So that's moving in the right direction. That's a great number for us. And the reason my questions are going this way is because you know, the city pages and other articles have been written about how people do not want to apply to be a police officer some say that they get disrespect that they, you know, why do you give yourself so much? You know, give so much of yourself and feel like they don't get enough back is. Is this based on Mike, maybe people are frustrated because they don't get paid enough as police officers is that one of the complaints. I I don't know if pay in Minnesota's an issue we recently hired a guy from Georgia in the pay in in the southern part of the United States sounds like it's horrible. So I dunno pays an issue. I think it's maybe more that the scrutiny that the police have been under in recent years, you know, with a with a good economy, maybe people are going in other directions. And you know, I don't know. Maybe people are just wondering if they really need that headache being scrutinized so much and seems like the police are under the microscope all the time. I I don't think it's a pay issue. I think I think our officers make pretty good money. But Mary, isn't it that police officers have always been under the microscope? Oh, absolutely. You know, and you know, I'll be hitting thirty years here in April. You know, we can go back to nineteen ninety two after the Rodney King incident. And how that changed law enforcement, and how long for Schmidt changed after nine eleven, and you know, you can pick. Over the course of time law enforcement has changed by the incidents that have been out in the community and the community saying this for us we demand better. So. In the last few years with the narrative the way it is the spotlight. I think that's part of the low numbers. I think like Mike alluded to the economy. And I think that helps where where jobs are being. But I think the real key to get people in law enforcement is generating that interest early especially when there's a good economy and jobs, they can pick whatever they want so much like, you know, in the heist in highschool, you see the the armed forces in highschool selling, you know, the army maybe air force and marines events exactly what they're doing is selling you write about. We're not they're selling a career in law enforcement my career in law enforcement was generated by Saint Paul police officers in the eighth grade when they were in junior high schools talking about junior juvenile crime and crime issues and how to stay out of trouble. And you know, talking about the functions of being a police officer in the mid nineteen eighties. That's what generated my interest in law enforcement and albeit in in the early eighties. There weren't many women on the police department. I find out when I get hired in nineteen eighty nine women had the shoe police officers in in in many agencies, and when you think about it. That's really not too far. That's not too far in the past is some people think that ninety one ninety two eight ten, but it's not now, we gotta take a break in a moment. But I want to set up this next question, Mike, and I wanna come to you when we come back from break. But the article in the Star Tribune stated that it comes a time when law enforcement agencies large and small. Are struggling with a shortage of officers nationally? My question will be are more guns on the streets. Really the problem here. So we're gonna take a.

"He's talk. You see? So let's see you are listening to steal talking. I'm your host Geraldine steel. And I'm still trying to figure out didn't Gladys saying God bless America. Sing the national anthem. I'm so sorry that I am behind the boat on this. Michelle let it will find out for me, by the way, she's our in studio produces. So that's the other voice that you will hear for these next few minutes. You know, I have to tell you singing the national anthem is not as easy as God bless America. Which by the way, I happen to have an affinity for. God bless America prefer that song. But you know, people people just don't know. And when people are asked to sing the national anthem that is the one song where everyone is trying to make sure that they know the lyrics that they do not blow the lyrics. You see that a lot of time with high school students at high school ball games. And someone comes out they could really has a pretty voice, and maybe he or she is really nervous. And they forget the words and some of them drop the mic and just run off. You know, you've seen the videos of things like that. But the bottom line is stick with it stick with it. Even if you make a mistake, stop and go back to that point. Again is worth getting right? It's worth getting right now. Steve Thompson had a question because he was talking about this. He was pretty obsessed yesterday when I was producing a show about how difficult it was for singers in that environment with all the cameras and the and the the football, and the, you know, the big game and all the eyes are on you to sing the national anthem. I mean is it is it the pressure is that the difficulty is being outdoors. I mean, you know, what was it? What is it that atmosphere light? Well, anytime you're singing, if you're outdoors singing, the national anthem, the weather is going to affect your voice in some way. Whether you have an allergy to, you know, mold in the air, you know, if it's a ball game or a baseball game or if it's a football game. And it's too cold. Old to dry. It can really affect your vocal cords. And so there you are acapella, usually, usually unless you have one of those with someone did attract for you, and your you're singing with the track then that's a different, but it can be really tough. If you're just, but the nice thing is if you're singing it a cappella, you can drop the key. You can kind of just. But you wanna make sure that people can sing along. I'm one of those who believes you need to sing the star spangled banner where people can sing along with you. That's how the national anthem should be sung at the games. Although I must say I do love Marvin Gay's version at their basketball game. There is video of that. If you ever want to look it up that was the sexiest national anthem, I have ever do, you know that version remember saying that as a little girl, and I've watched it as an adult. I mean, he just basically broke it all the way down with an NBA all star game. Yes. That's what it was. You forgot all about the NBA game girl. He was awesome. And so Whitney Houston ethic was one of the first to do it to attract when she saying to attract that time, which was fantastic. So you don't sing. It's other people can enjoy you sing it. So the people can sing along. Yeah. It's to me is that's the way it Houston dated. We could we could enjoy. And a lot of people prefer that for me if I'm gonna sing it. I prefer like the steals we break into harmony halfway through the song. And then we do harmony where everyone can steal sing with us. We don't add much to it at all. We keep it pretty simple, very powerful. Very simple. So that's that's how I feel about it. Hey, we have a great show lined up for you tonight. By the way, there's so much to talk about so much in the news. You know, it's like when you're trying to put together show with reduced Jimmy Eriksson issue letter Brundage is hard to figure out which one you gonna stick with you know, you hope that you can get the guest in. But boy, it's there's so much going on. It's like, okay. So where where do I land? What am I gonna talk who who I wanna talk to about? This thing is just wow, we have a lot going on in our world right now. And it seems to be at our doorstep doesn't it? So at seven thirty five we're going to have to guests in. We're going to have Mary Nash who was the deputy chief of the Saint Paul police department and also Mike flaky who is the deputy director of public safety. For the city of rich fields police department, and we're gonna talk about the search shortchange of well, not having enough police officers, and this seems to be a national problem. It just doesn't seem to be people that necessarily want to apply is that the money is is it the job and how difficult the job is there's so much to this. And I've got so many questions. I'm looking forward to seeing them are talking with them at seven thirty five. Then at eight ten we're gonna talk about how if twenty nineteen is the year that you wanted to build up your brand. How would you go about doing that? Because building a brand means a whole lot in this. If you're self employed, if you're an entree for Noor into preneurs, even we're gonna talk a little bit about what that means. And then at eight thirty five we're gonna have in studio with us. So what do you do segment now when you hear that song that little segment this I love the tractor that my nephew actually recorded that for me rooted recorded it, and it's it asked the question. So what do you do? And so we get a chance to find somewhere. We don't have a clue what they do. And then we get a chance to talk to them about it. So thank you Jimmy for setting up. I guess for. So what do you do tonight? Then of course, at nine o'clock is off things arts and entertainment. My brother JD is actually going to be on the phone with me tonight. Also, David left, which they are working on an opera together. And I can't wait wait to talk to them about that.

But now she has been named a ten thousand things new artistic director earlier this year.

Brian is gonna join us as well is she's chasing her musical dream in Nashville is find out how she's doing and Jerry Brown is also going to join us at nine fifty and we're gonna talk to him about what's going on Canterbury park.

I mean, maybe a painting about the the artwork. I was presenting over here. Start. He would be finger painting is probably the best way of describing that little dance move. I was doing. Okay. I saw the story. About a month ago, or so I think it was in the pioneer press when they talked about an officer had retired last September. Sergeant Dale naming and that left the Saint Paul police department with its last female African American officer. This is the first time that the Saint Paul police bourbon did not have an African American female on the department in forty six years. Okay. You also saw this. I saw my version in the Star Tribune chows on the crime reporter for Saint Paul Ramsey county. And I I thought is this nineteen twenty five what's going on in two thousand and nineteen. I I just I couldn't believe it. I had to read it twice. Okay. So then you and your partner me and my partner on the podcast Lindy Vincent from the too hot mamas show, which is available to you on WCTC radio. And it's it's very good. It's well worth reading. So we decided to have a whole show dedicated to this. So we called retired deputy name and Val name. And she's down basking in the sun in Florida after retiring more power to where you should be. And we also talked to Mary Nash who's a deputy chief commander who's in charge of recruiting women to the police force. And they said that you know, is the police department has not done a good job of keeping up with attrition and women. Just don't see policing as a career, especially in the African American community has do you think that has changed the last ten twenty years, or it's always been that way? I think it's changed in the last ten twenty years. I think policing and teaching and nursing will always seen as professions for women to go into they were stable you could feed your family. You could earn a pension. You know, the the, you know, it was they were great career opportunities for women, and I know families African American and otherwise where the grandmother was a police officer. And the mother was a police officer. Family is a family profession because you grow up around it, and we don't have that anymore. So what did you guys want to do? Then we wanted to find out how they were recruiting women, and they were saying all we we're out in social media, and it's on Facebook and Instagram Twitter, and we will like, no, no that's not how you reach black women. You want to reach black women. You gotta get out in the streets and go where we are. And so they were like, okay. So why don't we go? There's two places. Black women are going to be at least once a week, the beauty shop and church. And so we said put your shoes on meet us in all Rondo so Landy, and I took the podcast on the road. And we had flyers and got some women from the Saint Paul police department and we start knocking on doors a beauty shops. Hey, can we talk to your clients? Did you guys know that there were no African American female police officers give this to your granddaughter give this to your cousin? Are you interested? How did it go? It went so great so many women's at the flyers. They talked the police officers were there. They laughed and had a good time with the women as they got there. Hair done. It was a very loving and relaxed atmosphere. You know, a lot of times in the African American community when you present police officers some folks wanted tense up because they don't know what to expect some of the beauty shops. We went to I said, no you can't come in here, which they're allowed to do. Yeah. Your business and the first place we went to sense of style, salon on sale be say come on in and invited us, and we stayed there for most of the morning, just laughing and talking it's s clients will come in and out they took the flyers back to the families back to their children back to the nieces and nephews some of the women were really interested. They say, you know, I may not want to be a police officer. But there may be another aspect of law enforcement. I could go into and it's all a big push to get people to come to this recruiting drive on Saturday at ten o'clock at the same police training facility, and and Landy, and I just kind of jumped in, you know, decided that we wanted to make a difference because we don't just sit around on the podcast and Gavin have fun..
