 Interview with Phil Holland

Phil Holland is from Philadelphia. In 2014, Phil was delivering pizza. After returning to his car from a delivery, he was approached by two men. Phil, fearing he was being robbed, attempted to drive away. He was shot three times. The two men were plain clothed police officers. Phil survived his wounds, but is still suffering from one shot that was to his headPhil reached out to The Police & The People and asked if he could tell his story. Here it is.

Discussion Points:

1. Did anyone from the police department ever reach out to you personally?

2. Have any of the officers involved ever contact you?

3. Do you think the officers shot you because of your race?

4. Do you know if PPD changed their plain clothes policy?

5. An article I read stated that you were working 2 jobs to put yourself through school. Were you able to finish?

6. Do you have an opinion on how police departments can improve relations with the black community?


o   If you know someone that is looking to get into the law enforcement profession, make sure you pick up a copy of our “LAW ENFORCEMENT TEST PREPARATION GUIDE”. We have it linked on our website – GS-PCC.COM. Once there, go to the PRODUCTS & RESOURCES tab and scroll down to PREPARATION & STUDY GUIDES and you will see it. OR, you can just do a search for the book on Amazon. 

The law enforcement test preparation guide gives valuable insight on how to prepare for each step of a police testing process. The people who succeed at getting these jobs over their competition are the ones that are prepared. Don’t get left behind.
