Chief Anthony Pesare

What does it take to become a leader in the world of law enforcement, and how can you apply those lessons to your own life? Join me as I sit down with Police Chief Anthony Pesare of Middletown, Rhode Island, to talk about his extraordinary journey from an officer in the Rhode Island State Police to a lawyer, Dean of the School of Justice Studies at Roger Williams University, and author of the fictionalized autobiography, They Always Win.

Chief Pesare shares valuable insights into his approach to leadership and community policing, drawing upon his extensive experience both in law enforcement and academia. Listen in as we discuss his passion for fostering relationships within the community, creating a culture of strict law enforcement and community policing in Middletown, and the successes they've achieved in this area. You'll also hear about the significance of mental health calls and how the police department has adapted their response and training to better serve the community.

He taught at Salve Regina University and Roger Williams University, being selected as the Dean of the School of Justice Studies at RWU. After several years, Tony missed policing and became the Chief of Police with MPD. After 14 years, he retired and served as an Assistant Solicitor and Prosecutor for the town. Last year, Tony was asked to return as chief of the MPD.

Don't miss this powerful conversation with one of law enforcement's most dedicated leaders. You'll walk away with a deeper understanding of the role of leadership in promoting officer wellness and community policing, and perhaps even some inspiration to apply these lessons to your own life.

Chief Pesare joins the CopDoc Podcast on May 29th, 2023.
