In the wake of several headline-grabbing cases where police officers have been less than completely attentive to victims, there's a push to teach more sensitivity to the rank and file. Those who train officers say it comes down to basic human consideration, but public safety can be a desensitizing profession, to say the least. Friday morning at 9, join host Regina Brett for a conversation about sensitivity, police work, and why the two don't always go hand in hand when it comes to sex crime investigations.

what happened to separation of church and state?
guns and god? policing is a customer service job, no more no less. it’s the egotistical viewpoint
of being god’s hand that is the problem!
