#046: Brentwood Police Chief Tom Hansen
Mar 25th, 2019 by Contra Costa Today
On this episode, I chat with Brentwood Police Chief Tom Hansen who shares that crime was down 11% in Brentwood in 2018. He came on the podcast to talk about their upcoming Traffic Safety Campaign which has a slogan of “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine”. We get into traffic issues, how important communication is as a police officer and Hansen shares his thoughts on social media. We then get into mental health for police officers and importance of asking for help and finding healthy ways to decompress. Hansen shares his morning routine as both a cop and police chief, while he provides advice and shares concerns for new officers entering the profession while admitting he is scared for the future of the profession.
