Season 6 - Episode 112 - The CopDoc Podcast
What if you could unlock the secrets behind effective leadership and innovation in policing? Join us for an enlightening conversation with Dr. Obed Magny, a LEADS Scholar alum and former Sacramento police officer, as we discuss his journey from the front lines to his current work with Magny Leadership. Learn how reform and other issues have impacted police officers' job satisfaction, and how Dr. Magny was instrumental in creating the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing and a participant in the LEADS Scholars Program to advocate for research and ensure public safety.

As we delve deeper into Dr. Magny's insights, we explore the importance of purpose in opening up new opportunities for those nearing the end of their careers. Uncover how having a purpose beyond the job can help individuals plan for the future, while also revealing the dangers of tying one's identity solely to the job. In addition, we discuss the role of purpose in helping professionals find new paths and continue to thrive in their chosen fields.

Finally, we tackle the complex topic of race and policing, examining whether all police officers and agencies are inherently racist, how we can address implicit bias, and the unique experience of being a person of color and a police officer. Listen in as we consider the importance of trust and legitimacy in building relationships between police and communities, and the 54th Mile project – a 54-mile walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, that three police practitioners undertook. Don't miss this vital discussion on improving policing and promoting unity.
