Speaking Cops: The Back-the-Blue Podcast

"Speaking Cops: The Back-the-Blue Podcast, co-hosted by Bill Spadea and representatives from NJ Cops Magazine along with the New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association, focuses on law enforcement and community issues. In this monthly conversation, Bill speaks with representatives from New Jersey Law Enforcement and other stakeholders in New Jersey to share ideas for helping build a positive relationship between cops and communities. The podcast also serves as a resource for cops when it comes to mental health, financial issues and public safety. The goal is to offer an inside and in-depth look at how law enforcement works to serve the community at large, and how we can better stand up for those who stand up for us every day. Speaking Cops: The Back-the-Blue Podcast is produced by New Jersey 101.5 and sponsored by the New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association."
