A conversation with Commissioner Charles Ramsey


Guests: Charles Ramsey

Philadelphia Police Commissioner CHARLES RAMSEY joins Marty in the studio. The city’s top cop was recently tapped by President Obama to head the Task Force on 21st Century Policing, which is intended to examine police-community relations and make recommendations to the executive branch about policing tactics in a post-Ferguson America. Also, we’ll talk about the city’s experiment with police body cameras, the specter of relocating their headquarters, as well as the declining homicide rate in Philadelphia.
