Course Overview:
It seems as everyone expects law enforcement and public safety to have all the answers.Like, we should be able to fix the bad situations and make them better. Sometimes this is true, though many times unfortunately this isn’t the case. In all honesty we see the worse ofthe worse. We’re thrown into chaotic situations and expected to function in a normal capacity. Some can, and some can’t. Then we’re expected to live a normal life on our days off like everyone else. See, this is where things get interesting for us. We’re not like everyone else you see. No matter what you think or anyone tells you we’re wired differently. Which means we treat, and cope, and survive, and deal with things differently as well. That’s why for the last four-years in law enforcement we’ve had more suicides the nin-line of duty deaths. Firefighters and Medics have seen more suicides then in-line of duty deaths over the recent years as well, but why is this?

Sheriff Michael Neal, Ret. Detective Raul Rivas and Ret. Chief Jason Fitzwater have seventy-five years of experience combined in law enforcement. They have traveled North America the last three plus years speaking to tens of thousands of public safety professionals in over thirty states and Canada. Combined these veterans of the profession have dealt with just about anything you can think of on the job. Now they are sharing their stories both the good and bad and their incidents in their lives that changed everything forever. From the West Memphis shootout, to the domestic terrorism attack at pulse, to the everyday battles of addiction and war behind the closed doors of home.
