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.
Today on Love and Blues check out my post about the fight between police wives and the phones their loved ones have to carry. I will give you a hint…… I win this round!!
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!!
I can still remember the glares I would get at functions where my co-workers’ significant others were present. They never seemed to even give me a chance. At first I took it personally, then I became a LEO Wife. Suddenly it became clear to me. I was seen as the enemy. I was the woman who saw her husband probably more than she did. I got it. So I want to help quash this misconception.
Today on Love and Blues check out my post about the reality of what your husband’s female partner is about.
