Safety in Uncertain Times

Sheriff Peter Koutoujian of Middlesex County, Massachusetts, is dedicated to building trust with all residents of the incredibly large and diverse county. As a former state representative and a leader in state and national law enforcement associations, his position as an elected official gives him a unique platform to understand the narrative around public safety and law enforcement in America.

He and Ali discuss the local effects of federal immigration policies and the importance of public service. Plus — how police chiefs and sheriffs are showing they’re committed to serving all community members, regardless of immigration status.
