052 - Who Do They Say I Am: Dexter Pitts
A chaplain is not exactly a morale officer but it's kinda close. I'm deeply concerned about the hearts and minds of my officers and how beaten down they may feel. After the last several years of relentless negativity about law enforcement, I find myself yearning for a voice that is not just positive but one that can be resolute and strong in the face of adversity. So when I heard Dexter Pitts talk about personal responsibility and not letting negative voices redefine who and what you are, that was just what the doctor ordered.
Dexter is a cop from Louisville, Kentucky. He's a combat veteran and he has a wide variety of law enforcement experience. But what sets Dexter apart is that when he saw riots burning down his city, he left a job in a peaceful small town to go back and put on riot gear to stand with his fellow brothers and sisters in blue. Dexter has faced all kinds of adversity in his life which we talk about, including family tragedy, racism, and the ongoing argument for what it means to be a cop in America. Dexter's not to speak his mind and people hate him for it, but I bet you're going to love this guy.
