Dr. Travis Yates is one of the few that has spoken out against consent decrees within law enforcement and he has incredible credibility within the profession. He was speaking about the pending recruitment crisis long before it was mainstream and along with 30 years of law enforcement experience with a 20 years at the management level, he has traveled across the globe speaking and teaching to law enforcement on the areas of risk management and leadership.
He’s plain spoken, calls it like it is and to say that he recognized long ago the scam of consent decrees is an understatement. He recently released a podcast episode specifically on the Phoenix Police Department and the DOJ Investigation. You can listen to that below.
In that episode, Yates mentions the interview with Bob Scales. You can listen to that here.
