As I followed Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell around for a few days, it was tough for me to tell if I was talking to a police chief or an academic.
A bit of both, I suppose.
He recited off statistics and past experiences related to the criminal mind, economics and issues of simple survival throughout the few days I was with him. Blackwell's schedule is brutal, running from meeting to meeting and squeezing in the occasional media interview and maybe a bite to eat when he can. He hardly has time to call his wife.
