Public safety can be quite a commitment but for Martha Firnhaber, police commissioner for Shelbyville, it’s been something she has wanted to do for a long time. Firnhaber didn’t have children but still felt that she had something to give.
Sitting on the board, Firnhaber has tried to get more people involved in local government.
Firnhaber says that these conversations need to be had so people can participate.
Firnhaber says as police commissioner it’s hard to keep emotion out of her opinion, but she tries to do what she feels is right for the city.
Martha Firnhaber appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our studios in downtown Shelbyville.
