The silence around chronic exposure to trauma, cultural stress, and suicide is often a hidden or taboo topic within police departments. John weaves personal stories from his career and the challenges he faced both in the department and out on the street around taking care of the public as well as his own mental health. He challenges the culture in policing of toughness and silence by being transparent that officers need to take care of themselves and one another. Punctuated with humor John makes it safe to realize the most courageous thing you can do, is ask for help.
