Since 2005 I have been lecturing on peer intervention as Officer Survival. I've known many good cops during my career, and I've met many more since I retired. These are cops that helped save careers by living peer intervention as a partner, supervisor or mentor to other officers. On more than one occasion it was my career that was saved. But it wasn't always another cop that stepped up. Once it is was a typist; another time it was a family member. Once it was a good friend who saw I was on the wrong path and risked our lifelong friendship rather than see me lose the career I loved. Peer Intervention is about critical loyalty to ethical values that support the survival of your career, your freedom and your family.
To help our clients understand and practice peer intervention as an integral part of their commitment to serve and protect the officers, their families, and the citizens who place their trust in us.
To share our stories of ethical survival with the knowledge that story telling engages our emotions, our values and our imaginations to help create a system that truly means "With Liberty and Justice for All."
