In the inaugural episode, Wilmington Police Chief Ralph Evangelous talks about traffic concerns, the three roads that claim the most fatalities in Wilmington and what WPD is doing to keep drivers, pedestrians and cyclists safe.

“I think launching this podcast will be a great way for our agency to tell our story,” Evangelous says. “So many times, we wait for the local news media to share our information, but with the help of a podcast and an attentive audience we can tell our own story.”

Listeners can access the podcast on their smartphones by downloading Apple Podcasts (iPhone) or Pocket Casts (Android), or listen on the web at
