Today we're covering a career topic of interest to some local cops: the opportunity to be assigned to a federal task force. Whether it's for a single operation or it's a multi-year chunk of your career, task force work can be an opportunity to experience a different kind of law enforcement and make great relationships with folks outside of your agency.
So this is part one of an interview with Jon Asher a local cop and SWAT guy from a Kansas City suburb, who spent eight years doing high-risk fugitive apprehension with the U.S. Marshals. In this first part, John talks about how he went from a special unit to the task force and how it overlapped with his SWAT team responsibilities. He also talks about why it's advantageous for a local agency to have someone on a federal task force.
My previous episode on the U.S. Marshals was episode 015.
