The native New Yorker ran the Chicago Police Department under Emanuel for more than four years. Garry’s public service includes 25 years (1981-2006) as an officer on the New York Police Department, including six as deputy commissioner for operations; five years as police director in Newark, N.J. (2006-11) and four years as Chicago police superintendent (2011-15). Garry is a proven leader and he shares some of his deepest leadership knowledge and wisdom during this episode.  Our co-host this episode is Nick Lodge.  Shownotes: 2:49 Story of the second R in Garry 4:00 Garry's upbringing 7:27 How Garry knew being a policeman was the right path for him 19:51 Did 9/11 change your political views? - NY Has foiled 30 plots since 9/11 22:20 How Garry came to work in Chicago 29:51 How they achieved such a significant decrease in crime in Chicago 35:21 What makes a great police officer? 42:18 How would you change things if you were elected major? 49:31 Is there way to create more jobs in these underserved neighborhoods? 54:00 How do you convince businesses to stay with the possibility of paying more taxes? 1:01:23 How Garry used technology to benefit his police force 1:03:00 Where did you get your leadership principles?

Through policy and training efforts, he reduced police related shootings by 70 percent and police complaints by 50 percent. Since 2011, overall crime in Chicago fell by more than 37 percent—across the FBI’s combined major crime indices. McCarthy has been awarded more than twenty Commendations for Valor, is a sought-after expert and international public speaker, and is an active member of many organizations.

McCarthy attended the prestigious Police Management Institute at Columbia University as well as the graduate program at Marist College in New York. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from State University of New York-Albany. Garry has three wonderful children and lives in Chicago with his wife Kristin and their son.
