With crime on the rise, Eric Adams promised that when he became mayor, his police department would try to cut crime off at the pass, getting ahead of problems before they could get worse. National security expert and former undercover FBI agent Naveed Jamali joined Errol to explain how data can help the NYPD achieve this goal. He also argues that the police need to stop measuring success by the number of arrests they make and focus instead on disrupting criminal activity. Beyond sharing his ideas on how to improve public safety, Jamali dives into his experience infiltrating a Russian military intelligence operation in New York, a fascinating story that he narrates in detail in his book “How to Catch a Russian Spy: The True Story of an American Civilian Turned Double Agent.”
