Welcome to The Briefing Room

Every day, police officers start their shifts with briefing. This is the time when they can speak openly and candidly about the issues affecting them and their communities. Normally, briefing is off limits to civilians but your hosts, Detective Dan and Detectie Dave from Small Town Dicks, are inviting you in to discuss the latest crime trends, law enforcement training techniques, and, well, anything else that’s on their minds. You’ll hear from special guests as well regulars like Yeardley Smith and forensic expert Paul Holes. Together, Dan and Dave have decades in law enforcement and will draw on their considerable experience to guide these fascinating conversations.

Lasting Impact

In today’s briefing, Detectives Dave and Dan, and forensic investigator Paul Holes, share personal stories of traumatic events they experienced on the job that left them struggling with post-traumatic stress. Joined by guest host Yeardley Smith, they discuss why there needs to be a renewed focus on mental health treatment for all first responders, and the urgent need to redefine when and how police officers are able to seek help when they inevitably experience tragic events that leave a lasting impact.

People of Conscience

In today’s briefing, Defense Attorney Lissa returns for another civilized, yet provocative, discussion about the inner workings of the justice system. How does a defense attorney prepare the jury? What does she tell her client when the prosecutor offers a deal? And why does it take ‘people of conscience’ to make the wheels of justice turn? Detective Dave, Detective Dan, and Yeardley Smith invite you into The Briefing Room for another insightful conversation.
