Cops in Crisis: An Interview with Eddie Campa

Its lonely at the top, especially if you are in law enforcement and politics are preventing you from doing your job. Should you find yourself in this situation, you might want to reach out to Eddie Campa and his firm - Leading Through Adversity. In this episode, I chat with Eddie Campa about his background in law enforcement, why he founded Leading Through Adversity and the types of clients he serves. Moreover, we discuss the "Defund the Police" movement and the usefulness of social workers in law enforcement. We also reflect on mental health hospitals and where they disappeared to. Tune in now so you can say, hey, "I didn't know that about mental health hospitals!" 


Jesus "Eddie" Campa
Leading Through Adversity

Eddie  was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. After 27 years of law  enforcement experience, Eddie retired from public service and  transitioned his experience and expertise to the private sector as a  mentor, consultant, and sounding board. Eddie served as a Chief Deputy  and Chief of Police on two different occasions.

As  a result of his last tour as Chief of Police in a city impacted by  racial divisions, he created and implemented the innovative No Colors No  Labels Initiative designed to remove the preconceived notion that the  Police were racially motivated. NCNL provided a safe community for all  citizens. In 2017 he was named Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian  of the Year by the NAACP. He is a leader who believes in diversity and  that a workforce should mirror the community they serve.

Eddie  most recently served as the Executive Director for the Council on Law  Enforcement Education and Training for Oklahoma State as State Director.  He is a leader who believes in diversity and that a workforce should  mirror the community they serve.

He  holds a master's degree in Criminal Justice and Security Administration  and is currently working on a PH.D. in Public Service Leadership. He is  a strong supporter of leadership development, strategic planning,  customer service, crisis communication, 21st Century Policing, and  Procedural Justice. Eddie is the owner of both America's Best Strategic  Security Group and Leading Through Adversity.
