ICC Pulse Podcast

Jun 29, 2023

The ICC Pulse Podcast is back with a whole season of 5 episodes ready to listen! This is one of the five.

In this episode of the ICC Pulse Podcast, we highlight perspectives from code enforcement officers educating the code enforcement officer profession, including stories from being on-the-job and how the public perception of code enforcement officers continues to improve. The episode also highlights the ongoing need for training for code enforcement officers, including code official safety training that anyone can take to learn de-escalation skills and other soft skills when encountering hazardous situations.

Trigger Warning: While we try to keep the conversations light in our show, this episode contains discussions of death and violence as we talk about the safety of code enforcement officers. We’ll note where these conversations occur in the show notes should you wish to skip over them. Listener discretion is advised.
