Play • 57 min

Welcome back to the conclusion of my interview with Author and NYPD Detective Vic Ferrari! 

Author Vic Ferrari is a retired New York City Police Department detective with the hamstrings of a twenty-year-old. A survivor of an Irish father and Italian mother, Vic loves a cold beer and insists on you removing your shoes when entering his home. When he's not writing, he's picking up after his neurotic Irish Wolfhound.  

 In today’s episode we discuss:

·      Compstat Policing.

·      The perilous unintended consequences of highly restrictive pursuit policies and because of ego, the unwillingness of command staff to change.

·      Vic’s humorous and informative tell-all books about life in the NYPD.

·      The reaction Vic received from his former colleagues regarding his books, the answer might surprise you.

·      Vic’s life as an author.

·      What life was like as an NYPD detective on 9/11 and his firsthand accounts from ground zero.

·      Common NYPD misconceptions that are generated from Hollywood and other media outlets.

 All of this and more on the conclusion of my interview with Vic Ferrari!
