    You are condescending. Process that if your “hun dreads of interviews” allow it. Bad way to come across. Even bringing politics into it. The job is harder and harder for many actions officers were caught in video doing wrong the men and women and supervisors have to deal with and change the ways of the job. The one thing I agree with it’s real. The opinions should be left out or can be said differently, instead of “many” or generalizing.

    Way to slap others in the face. You actually interview Officers? wow, how do you come off a statement like that? Really? I hope you are not the help. You are basically telling others they are a wuss.

    Thank you sir may I have another?

    I think I follow the post with the point possibly being that as officers we are our own worst enemies. We often in some situations come across as arrogant and insensitive. All you have to do is attend annual training or any in service training and you will hear “war stories” some of which are so far from the actual truth it makes you wonder where they actually heard the story from. I agree everyone handles stress differently however those that walk around like nothing bothers them and then blame lack of leadership or supervision for PTSD which is a horrible thing to deal with, is just wrong.

    Then we come on here where the public can view and we trash everything about our department and our colleagues. It’s no wonder the public questions the way we do our jobs and the people who are doing it. If you’ve ever testified in court and had your credibility questioned you know what I’m referring to.

    Every other thread on this site bashes officers who “don’t do real police work” and who have “never worked in a real district”. I’ve traversed the county from one end to the other and I can attest that each district has its fair share of “real crime” and tragic incidents. Why must we use this opportunity to bring attention to a real problem like PTSD to turn it into a political platform instead of just recognizing it exists and be grateful as a profession we are being afforded an opportunity to get the proper help.

    Stop the bashing and try and be supportive, it actually might help.

    Just saying....

    There is so much hate amongst us, that no wonder we suffer from this and many other illnesses.

    Does your job provide help for this?

    I don’t see the department doing anything about this. They should have a mandatory evaluation if an officer is involved in traumatic incident before they can return to work.
