New Bedford Police Chief Joseph Cordeiro is making his second appearance on Townsquare Sunday. Cordeiro has served as chief for nearly two years after his appointment by Mayor Jon Mitchell. His tenure has been marked by efforts to bring police into the community, working closely with young people and constituent groups. Cordeiro will speak with WBSM's Jim Phillips about those programs, along with the latest crime-fighting techniques being used in New Bedford, and the Department's desire to recruit more Spanish-speaking officers.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
