Knowing your weaknesses is more important than knowing your strengths.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen interviews former police officer Micheal Garcia about policing in the US.

After retiring from 8 years in law enforcement, Micheal shares his personal perspective and experiences of the academy, training, and service with the Los Angeles Police Force. He explains there are three types of officers: individuals who want to serve their community; people looking for a good salary and retirement; victims of bullying eager to exert power. Micheal advocates for better screening and training of officers.
