How to be a cop and be happy
While you can’t change what the job of law enforcement is, you can change your outlook through wellness training
Things may be settling down as far as the hurricane of police criticism we’ve seen over the past year, with calls to “defund” law enforcement now turning into calls to “refund” law enforcement. However, officers are still struggling to keep their heads up amid the criticism, scrutiny and changing landscape that has vilified them. Police families and their loved ones feel the strain, both physically and emotionally.
On this episode of Policing Matters, host Jim Dudley is joined by attorney and former deputy sheriff Bridget Truxillo, who now works to bring wellness and support to the public safety community as founder and CEO of Protective Wellness. Jim and Bridget chat about how law enforcement officers can apply wellness principles to improve their emotional wellness.
