The Badge with Howard Safir will launch on Sunday, January 29 at 11:00 am ET on SiriusXM Stars (channel 107) with special guest former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

On upcoming shows, Safir will be joined by current and former police chiefs, agents, decorated officers, prosecutors, issue advocates and other top-level insiders. They will offer listeners advice on how to stay safe and what to do if you are the victim of a crime, and explore topics including: what exactly happens when someone is arrested, realities and myths of popular television shows like CSI, cybercrime and protecting your identity, career criminals and the complexities of letting repeat offenders walk. Each week, Safir will honor fallen officers who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. He will also pay tribute to officers whose valor and courage have made them heroes in their communities.
