Effective Conversations

Sergeant Nate Holt is from the Nelson police department. This conversation is my first attempt to hear the police side in the environmental conflict.

In the recent episodes, we heard a lot about police violence against land defenders, police misconduct and abuse of power and I felt it's about time to hear their side of the story.

Show Notes

I wanted to learn about how is it to be a police officer facing land defenders, how they view their power, what aggravates them and the situation and how they see their role in this conflict. 

Srg. Holt turns out to be an open-minded and compassionate officer that does his best to be proactive in preventing conflicts. He shares his perspective about the challenges the police face dealing with mental health and their own emotions in a tense conflict.
