Description: What is it like to truly follow your interests?  In this week’s episode, Dr. Eric Piza talks about his transition from an analyst in Newark, New Jersey to a professor and researcher at John Jay College.  Eric reflects on his two badges stories:  Foot Patrol Hotspots and Video Surveillance.  While many research projects broke his heart, this does not discourage him from pursuing his interests.  Jason and Eric also have a lengthy discussion on the lack of new key performance indicators in the Compstat process. Eric has a new book entitled Modern Policing Using ArcGIS Pro, and he is currently an associate professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
