Steve Scher talks with Lisa Daugaard, policy director of the Public Defender Association, about the Assistant Police Chief Jim Pugel's decision to retire.

Then, Q13 Fox political analyst C.R. Douglas examines what Pugel's retirement means for the Seattle Mayor Ed Murray's administration and overall police reform in Seattle.

Note: Lisa Daugaard is speaking as an attorney who had worked closely with Pugel, not in her capacity as the co-chair of the Citizen's Police Commission.
