This week is part two of our three-part “Policing the Providence Police” special. This week, Jen and Moira sit down with former Executive Director of the Providence External Review Authority, current state representative, and second time guest on the show, Jose Batista. We cover everything from the Sayles street body camera footage to what PERA should be doing to hold the police accountable. We come up with tangible budget changes to improve the existing police force and play a little Dictator of PERA. Tune in and find out how we can build a better relationship with our police officers.
