Cover Letter, Resume, & Essay Questions for Chicago PD

Please read through. Even if just to discuss the ideas.

The application does say that: In addition to listing references, you may have up to four (4) letters of recommendation submitted on your behalf. If you choose to request such letters, they should be from individuals who know you well (the individuals need not be the same as those on your list of references). The letters must be sent by the writer directly to the office of the Police Board. (4) letters of recommendation can be received. I prefer they come from the public, not who I pick and choose.

Lions of Liberty Podcast Ep. 128: Michael A. Wood, Jr. – Former Baltimore Cop Exposes Police Brutality

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair is joined by former Baltimore police officer Michael A. Wood, who recently made headlines for a series of tweets exposing instances of police brutality he witnessed during his 11 year with the Baltimore PD. Michael explains what drove his desire to become a police officer from a very young age, and how his view of the role of police was gradually altered during his time serving as a police officer on the streets of Baltimore. Marc and Michael discuss the case of Freddie Gray, the questionable circumstances surrounding his arrest, and why the abuse Gray likely received at the hands of police officers is so common. Michael describes the many instances of police brutality he witnessed as an officer, the inherent racism of policing in the United States, and how even minority officers so easily become a part of the problem. Michael touches on what he sees as the root of the problems with police brutality, and what he thinks can be done to see true reform and justice going forward.

Don’t miss this revealing episode, and stay tuned for Marc’s own thoughts in the wrap-up rant!
