We Build w/Henry County Sheriff Reginald Scandrett
On this episode of We Build: The Podcast, Paul and Lonoia are joined by Reginald Scandrett, the Sheriff of Henry County, Georgia. Join us as we learn more about why he ran on the platform of “bringing the community and law enforcement together,” and the importance of cultural understanding and community policing. He brings to life his 32 years of law enforcement experience and shares some of the inherent challenges of the profession and how it impacts the person. He paints a picture of the day-in-the-life of a law enforcement officer, sharing the kinds of experiences they have that can change them psychologically, and why it’s a priority for him to test his officers twice a year for their psychological wellbeing so they can better serve the community and their families.
