Show Notes

My guest on today’s show is best-selling author and retired Police Captain Frank Zafiro!

During his law enforcement career, Zafiro worked as a patrol officer, corporal, and detective before entering leadership roles and becoming a sergeant in 2002. He was fortunate enough to command patrol officers, investigators, K-9 officers (and their dogs!), and the SWAT team. He also commanded both the patrol division and the investigative division of the police department at different points in his career. 

Frank is an accomplished writer with over forty books published.

In today’s episode we discuss:

·      Frank’s early years in the United States Army and how that prepared him for future leadership roles

·      Why Frank became a police officer. 

·      Frank’s law enforcement career with the City of Spokane.

·      The importance of leadership and Frank teaching Leadership in Police Organizations. 

·      Being a captain in charge of the patrol bureau. 

·      How he consistently produces numerous books.

·      Franks podcast, Wrong Place, Wright Crime. 

·      All of this and more on today’s episode of the Cops and Writers podcast.
