Description: An after-hours special with our guest, Krista Whitehead, where she talks about her transition from a juvenile probation officer into a crime analyst for the Sheriff’s Office in Richmond, Texas, her involvement with the Texas Law Enforcement Analyst Network (TXLEAN), and her badge story about a burglary series at Chick-Fil-A locations -- can you guess what they called the case? This episode touches on the controversial topic of privatized prison systems, especially at the juvenile level, and how it affects the criminal justice system as a whole. Krista also emphasizes the importance and need for social media literacy especially for “old school” law enforcement professionals who don’t use social media in their personal lives. Krista is currently an Intelligence Operator for the Fort Bend ISD in Sugarland, Texas.
We are very thankful Krista had walked away from a car accident almost unscathed, and would like to remind everyone to please wear your seatbelts and be careful on the road.
