Training The Police

Aug 25, 2014

Police shootings elicit strong feelings in the affected communities and give people elsewhere pause to think about the wider implications. They also raise questions about how police are trained.

We looked at what police training looks like in Vermont with Richard Gauthier, Executive Director of the Vermont Criminal Justice Training Center, and we spoke with Allen Gilbert, Executive Director of the ACLU of Vermont about where he thinks that training might fall short. We also heard from Rutland Police Chief Jim Baker about how police training is put to use on the ground.

Also, reclusive writer J.D. Salinger's old house in Cornish, NH, is up for sale. We'll get a walk through with the real estate agent.

And finally, for this week's summer school: how to build a stone wall.
