Give Me Two Days

My Brother in Blue from the UK @NathanConstable prepared this article about mental health & Cops. It’s incredibly written.

I dread some calls more than others. Strangely, it is not the calls involving death or horror which cause me anxiety. A murder, though high profile, is often a relatively simple investigation. Large-scale public disorder is unnerving but the police receive extensive training to deal with it and can usually rely on force of numbers to help out. If it’s a crime – we investigate. If it’s anti-social behaviour – we try to tackle it. If there is an upset victim or witness we try to comfort them. We are largely in our comfort zone when dealing with any of these circumstances.

The jobs which tax me most are those which involve any element of mental health.
