In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking to Dave Marshall, who recently retired after serving over 30 years in policing.

This shift has eroded public trust in policing and created a perception of incompetence among the police force.   If you are interested i ..read more

It was only sometime later that he hinted that his life had not always been like that.  This was the first time that I had heard his full story and it frequently made for difficult listening. Craig is a great example of how it is possible to turn your life around and get away from a criminal lifestyle ..read more
