Purpose

Police Academy's mission is to lessen the divide between the police and an understandably confused and misinformed society by having the conversation no one is having. Traditional media outlets, driven by ratings and special interests, have long strayed from their true calling; to bring the truth to the masses. Polarizing news stories may bring in more money and higher ratings, but they are tearing apart a great country and real peoples' lives.

Here, the only story will be the real story, the only answers straightforward and honest. We are all human: often broken and always imperfect. It is time to accept that, be honest about our mistakes, and stop demanding mercy for ourselves but justice for the rest. We are all in this together. 

Platform

Podcast: Features in depth discussions, interviews and answers to listener questions about police issues. 

YouTube Channel: Provides frame-by-frame analysis of viral police videos. Find out why the police took the actions they took, whether they were justified, and if there were any realistic alternative options. 

Blog: Written by the host of the show, Terence Herrick.  Here, anything goes. You've been warned ;)
