From the day we get hired, start police academy, or for many even before that- we consider how ready we may be for "that bad day." That day could be sprinting to save a kid in peril. It could be getting up a few flights of stairs quick enough to help your buddy in a bad spot. It could be a fight for your life. Any reasonable, responsible officer wi…

We frequently talk about stress and trauma, as they are direct facets to true wellness.

Commander Cristian Adams and I have collaborated on many things, most recently regional police recruitment and wellness initiatives.

I had to pleasure to first meet Minerva when she was co-hosting for the Police Applicant Podcast with Ken (see episode 53!). We chatted police hiring then and now. Prompted by a social media post about challenges facing women in policing (@fitresponder reel), we got chatting about how Minerva faced or witnessed a LOT of what was presented. In our c…

Whether or not policing is for you, you've imagined a policy academy environment. It may have been suggested to you, from the comedies by the same title, SWAT, or Silence of the Lambs. In truth, it's a blend of all those things.. at least it was for me. My main TAC Officer (WA State Academy Instructor) was Ken Henson. He didn't work for my departme…

I got connected with Ty and was immediately impressed with his extreme presence. At 6'6", 300 plus pounds he's a rolly-polly BJJ martial artist on the mats, can squat higher than I can count, and do the splits... this dude is something else. Oh, and all that isn't his day job. He spends his time designing and building custom homes down in Waco. To …

He ran the…

First Responder World, as I called it, is riddled with crazy and amazing stories of triumph, life lessons on steroids (or any PEDs really, even SARMs if you wanna go there..), and intense things that only "we" and our families will ever truly understand. You could break that down into specifics with every different role. So what happens when you ha…

Before I met Chris, I had heard much about him. That happens with a certain kind of cop in the region (in the good way). He was a SWAT cop, he carried with him much experience and much respect. He and his wife ran a Crossfit gym. Facebook suggested we were friends, and I saw a photo of a dude who looked like a dude who ran a Crossfit gym. Oh, and I…

I didn’t always want to be a cop, but I always knew I wanted to be a dad. My opinion has always been that we needed more male role models and father figures. I don’t want to imagine where I’d be if I grew up without any. From my perspective as a police officer, my feeling having only increased about the necessity for strong fatherhood- and how many…

So after weeks, months, rescheduling, and all that, the three of us FINALLY connected …

I connected with Jason some time back, and more recently, I saw a post he made about 9/11. He hired on with NYPD two months prior to the catastrophic event, and would be responding to Ground Zero as an academy recruit. It boggled my mind considering what that would have been like. It considered how being in high school, 9/11 shattered many of my pa…

There's a new sheriff in town! Well, as of early this year there certainly was. My lessons in political science underlined how difficult it is to beat an incumbent, despite the other factors. Well, my guest, Derek Sanders did just that in the election for Thurston County Sheriff here in WA State. No small feat, but from the outside he did so with i…

Often times, we are most likely to listen to those who have been there/done that (as we should). When it comes to lessons learned in police work, mental health, and critical incident stress, Travis Gribble is an ideal example. He is a man who has been in the thick of it, and we as first responder (in career OR LIFE) should listen and heed his exper…

School cops: working with kids. So what do you ask the guy who worked SWAT, Traffic, Narcs, K9, promoted all the way up to Captain.. and at the height of his career... requested a…

Bill Blowers needs no introduction in much of the police world nationally and certainly regionally. He is a lot of things- Captain America with a potty-mouth as I say in this interview. He was my first training officer- and set a tone and drive in me on so much of this profession that was a foreign language and culture. With an unwavering attitude …

Hint: talk to people like they're people! And like you're a person! Novel concept! We talk about humanizing the badge, which means we need to act like “normal” people first. Easier said than done, and I wish I had know this early in my career. It's definitely that much harder if you let your emotions and ego get in the way of things. I tried the ro…

I first met Jason when I was doing police K9 training with my neighbors at Renton PD. He wasn't a handler (in the PD) but he was experienced in dog sport (tracking and bite work). The dude moved as a dog quarry (or decoy) in ways I hadn't seen after years of training with other cops and in seminars. He analyzed the dog's actions and our training st…

Ever since I got into Police Hiring and Recruiting a common question I got was about how to improve on push up reps and max. Most states require a certain number of push ups, ie 20 unbroken, but what can you do rather than simply grinding through your max daily? (The answer is A LOT)! I’ve spoken before about how much a fan I am of weight training …
