Jim – Significant incidents

Jim – Significant incidents

Jim discusses being involved in a significant incident and how it's normal to feel overwhelmed and ruminate over it. You may even start to drink or use drugs to cope. But it's important to remember that you're not alone. Many police officers have been through similar experiences. And there are resources available to help you get through this. One of the best things you can do is talk to a trusted friend or colleague. They can offer support and understanding. You can also seek professional help from a therapist or counselor. They can help you to process your experience and develop healthy coping mechanisms. It's also important to remember that you can't change the past. But you can learn from it. And you can move on. Don't let one incident define you. You are a strong and capable person. And you will get through this.
