About this episode: Dr. De Lacy Davis only became a cop to finance his music career, but things didn't go as planned. He fell in love with the community he served and remained on the force for over 20 years. As a black officer in a historically racist institution, he struggled daily to navigate the ultimate toxic workplace. Though both his career and his personal life have been marked by tumultuous change, the through line in his story is a commitment to service, honesty, compassion and an innate belief in "doing the right thing" regardless of the consequences. About our guest: Dr. De Lacy Davis works to prevent police brutality and to educate those who have experienced trauma caused by such actions through workshops, speaking engagements, scholarly works, innovative techniques and programs. He is an educator, author, community leader, activist and retired police officer who founded Black Cops Against Police Brutality in 1991.
