Our very 3.5 and now morning Playhouse a hit man and Christiana and Wichita police chief court wherever you are what does this morning. Ain't good morning chief Ramsey how are you served pretty good pretty good for Wednesday yeah thank you for coming in and be an on what does I know I was scheduling. It was tricky and you know what I really respect is the fact that. You scheduled to us directly with me and let me go back and forth who's secretary your Ameritrade emails and it was kind of cool us like okay. The inches is only you know isn't just that the people like that how. So T tell us are since the last time we met a lot of things have happened we have the that propelled the first let's not cook out that was huge it was trending on Twitter. Well over 700. Different stories nationwide about the first steps cookout. And you've got some our national attention of which you really weren't seeking religious gonna happen. It's. Yet it is you know what I like to the kind of labeled the radars and a little bit overwhelming actually quite an honor but. You know all. The cook outs one thing but we really need to do make some sustained changes in the end. Start making some improvements right and I think there's a lot of people that are that were happy with that but they wanna see. Results they wanna see you. Action exactly. Exactly in fact I have talked to our friends all over the country. We all know about the tragic events to happen among Milwaukee. And I'm just talking to some people from Milwaukee yesterday who called me up and ask me about the first let's cook now. Because they're wanting minerals they could do something like that in your community because I bring bring people together. And I know that you got in an unexpected invitation to the White House from the president. And you and I kind of pets at each other back and forth through like you said that there really wasn't something he was seeking because it's easier if you wanted to keep the focus on the message to what was really important. And not only that there is a lot of people involved in this yet you know a lot of community. Leaders and and others that help make this happen and it. And really they should have the invite to. So. But the problem was is I had committed to my of my brother in laws that wedding time I was a justice of the peace and I told them I would do over a year ago I want to stay. In good terms of my family. All right this. I was 24 hours before are supposed to do his wedding and uninvited couple hundred people and you know. I would have I guarantee you they would've been happy with Meehan and then little left them in a lurch. Via via kind of bring us up to speed SR Guam wash last week. And I know why they're there we AJ go hand MM Brandon Johnson and a few others I've talked to a since we last met. Behind the scenes is very little you can Cilic serve is if there's a limit development stage. Well no there's there's a lot we've been doing you know there's. We we want to. Really be leaders and help us lead out of where we are with please junior relations via and you know our department is committed we've got tremendous officers and also wanna see. Us improve our relationships and into weekend. But it does take two so we've got some community leaders don't want also work with us and and make these changes would a couple of them are. More involvement in. The complaint process so putting together civilian review board that Ken. That they can look at the complaints and go back to the communion and share with them what they're seeing I'll tell you what. I'm proud of the investigations that are done on complaints are very thorough but the problem is is that. State law prohibits us personal data from sharing and so it leaves a lot of unanswered questions out there and you know one of the things that this portal do know they'll be. They'll they'll have to obeyed by the quorum rules on data released but. They can share with the community what they see an end and that I think when you have people with legitimacy. That are associated with the police department England say those things I think. It will be beneficial yet and it's amazing some of the things that people say when they are not in fall. Correct and some of it is so involved and and really requires looking explanations at times that even if you didn't tried to explain. It might not really be that simple to understand. Yes the explosion of social media in a strain to get. Facts out and you know oftentimes rumors start spinning out of control these days away and that is the challenge moving forward how do we know if you'll just hold on. Let us let us work through these things for your own facts and go from there but the emotions then and and whatnot with many issues right now are spinning out of control that I think that's what. Happen in other parts of the country. Milwaukee and in the please explain what about the god squad PI and you got all Jian boards helping our stuff house and go that's great you know we've got. A number of church leaders that have come with us come together with us and we're really trying to. We're together when their when issues do come up this and bring in that element of community leadership that again outside the police department to help. People worked through your emotions and feelings and and have a discussion but also keep things under control so they don't get you know people are getting. Helping them with their motions but also ensuring that things don't get too out of your. For sure you know what I'd like to see is just an ongoing engagement and it's not always meet when there's a problem. It's actually that's the key ask you can't wait till there's a problem you need to build up the relationships that so cool.
