In an interview over the phone with BG Falcon Media reporter, Ryan Dick, Deputy Chief Justin White shares insight into the Bowling Green Police Department and their budget in response to current national movements to defund the police.
White also discusses the already existing relationship between BGPD and social workers to help people with mental illnesses, as this is one large reasoning behind the defunding movement.
The Deputy Chief encourages all citizens to reach out to the police department if they have any questions or concerns.
“The important thing is for people to understand exactly what we do, and how we do it.”
