“I always envisioned that one day I would be where I am today; I wanted to be a police chief.” -Ramon Batista, Chief of Police, Santa Monica PD
“I’m always aware that ethnic minorities in this country have had a different experience growing up when it comes to their relationship with police.”
“If we are armed with the right kind of less-than-lethal tools, this allows us to come out of highly charged critical incidents with good outcomes, where everyone walks away safe.”
