I'm the founder of Policevets.Org. A site for retired and disabled law enforcement officers.
SUICIDE -The fallen and those at risk are my brothers and sisters. Shortly after I launched the website. A retired officer sat with a gun in his lap. He reached out by calling me. After several tense hours on the phone, he put the gun down. I didn't know where he was or who he was at that time. 7 1/2 years have passed and he still calls to let me know he is still fighting the battle, but that it hasn't claimed him.
Many years earlier an officer reached up to me, but never told me why he called. I only realized he was reaching out when I was informed of his death.
This documentary will provide opportunities for troubled officers to reach out for help and for the community to help them.
