Act Like a Cop: Protecting our Authentic Selves

Police officers often fall victim to burn-out, cynicism and frustration. Agencies provide equipment to protect their bodies, but not necessarily their minds. There is a tremendous need to provide tools to protect officers’ ‘Authentic Selves.”  Cops play many roles during their shifts. Just like an Improv Skit, one never knows what role they will play next. Chelley shares ideas on how to spare your Authentic Self - putting a character in your place, and remembering that the most important role we all play is “The Best Cop We Can Be” in every scene.
