S@5: August 21, 2022

This week on Sunday @ 5 on WBFJ (August 21, 2022)

Conversation with a Cop

Enjoy our March 2022 Morning Show conversation with Catrina Thompson, Chief of Police for the City of Winston-Salem.  Follow the life journey of Winston-Salem’s ‘top cop’.



Highlights from our interview:  High School cheerleader in the ‘Motor City’ (Detroit). How switching majors while in college at Wayne State University -from computer engineering to Criminal Justice- took Thompson on the path of law enforcement – protecting and serving the people of the Twin City (Winston-Salem).

And how building relationships between residents and law enforcement is the key to connecting with her community.

And what about winter driving in Carolina, after those winters in Michigan?  BIO: https://www.cityofws.org/1506/Chief-Catrina-A-Thompson

Update: Thompson recently announced that she is retiring as the Chief of the Winston-Salem Police Department in December 2022.

President Biden just nominated Thompson to serve as a U.S. Marshal for the Middle District of North Carolina. The U.S. Senate must approve Thompson and the other Biden nominees to serve as U.S. Marshals (which serve four-year terms).
