Sergeant Ronald Robinson is a law enforcement officer with more than 10 years experience in the Roanoke City Police Department. We’ve know each other since 2012 when he first became a member at my gym, House of Strength.
Beyond the badge, Ronald is one of the finest humans I’ve ever met. He’s a husband, father, coach, mentor, community leader, and friend to all. It’s an honor to reconnect with Ronald for this conversation at a crucial time.
In this episode we discuss many of our collective concerns including race, racism, what it’s like to be a police officer right now, leadership, and how we can all make a positive impact in our communities.
