Decatur Police Chief Mike Booker has been in charge of the city’s law enforcement operations for 12 years and has been with the department since 1990. A lot has changed in Decatur during that time and a lot of things about policing have changed, too. The chief went over a range of topics, from racial profiling, to police shootings and the controversy surrounding Decatur’s treatment of immigration suspects. It was a great discussion. Give it a listen.

Music for this podcast was provided by the Bantam Breaks. This episode was recorded at the Decatur Library. The sponsor for this week’s episode is Charter Bank. To learn more about them, visit
