During the annual conference of the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA) in St. Louis, Policing Matters podcast co-host Doug Wyllie roamed the hallways and ran into countless law enforcement trainers and experts, some of whom were willing to sit down and talk about what they're teaching and what they're learning.

In this podcast segment, Doug sits down with Police1 columnist Duane Wolfe, who in 2012 wrote an article entitled "The day I put a gun to my head." Duane and Doug discuss the genesis of that article as well as the impact it has had on officers contemplating suicide.
