Interesting Voice On Police Reform Re-Emerges

In another life, when I worked in the office of Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, I got to know the city's new police chief, David Couper.

From afar, I have followed Couper's career, from law enforcement to the ministry.

Now in retirement from both professions, Couper is working on a book about democratic policing.

He explains that in an op-ed in the Capital Times, and I'm passing that along, here.

Thanks for post, an instructive, enlightened and hopeful perspective in contrast to the just released Mead and Hunt, Inc. analysis of needed expansion and modernization of the WI prison system infrastructure.
