Podcast Archives: The State of Policing, With Everett Sesker

This week, the Conduit Street Podcast presents an episode from the archive with special guest, recently-elected Anne Arundel County Sheriff, Everett Sesker.

Sesker joined the podcast in 2020 as a law enforcement consultant at the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT), where he trained police officers to understand and overcome implicit bias and assessed potential risks to law enforcement agencies across Maryland.

In this episode, we discuss the state of policing, including overcoming implicit bias, community policing, accountability, transparency, and how new technology plays a significant role in how police serve and protect the community.

Everett Sesker was sworn in as the Anne Arundel County Sheriff earlier this year after defeating incumbent Jim Fredericks in the November election. Before becoming Sheriff and his role at LGIT, Sesker served as the executive director of the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission, where he worked closely with law enforcement leaders and policymakers to oversee and improve the accreditation process for police officers.

Sheriff Sesker retired at the rank of Major from the Prince George’s County Police Department after 22 years of service. He has held command positions in training, narcotics, community relations, district stations, headquarters, and public relations.
