Finding Peace as a LEO Wife

As National Police Week comes to an end it is important for the family of our police officers to find peace in the reality we live daily. Today on Love and Blues I offer some suggestions that I learned from being both a police wife and also a retried police officer.

The Blue Line Warrior

I was recently contacted by the man behind the hashtag; the creator of  #IAM911, Ricardo from the Within the Trenches Podcast. He asked me to listen to the preview of Episode 146. This episode shares just some of the #IAM911 stories heard at a live event. Within two minutes of listening I had chills and tears in my eyes all at once. This episode gives the listener just a small glimpse into what it is like to be a telecommunicator in public service. This episode will be great for not only other telecommunicators but for everyone, the officer you work with, the friend who is not in public service, your family member who always asks what your job is like…….so basically everyone!!

Get excited, get ready for the release of this episode at the end of the week!!

This great article by Lou Hayes Getting Lefter of Bang takes a look inside a must read book by all police and military personnel.  This article suggests there is more to threat assessment than just the physical act most of us think of when reading “Left of Bang” by Patrick VanHorne and Jason Riley. It threatens to get our minds working more than is usually required of public servants. Great article about a wonderful and much needed book!!
