Traditionally, police officers have opted to maintain a level of anonymity and discretion when speaking about the daily operations and challenges of a beat cop. Times are a-changing though. The fact of the matter is, they are often just too traumatic to describe. As media continues to paint a picture of police and community relations, many officers are taking it upon themselves to tell their own story based on their own experience. Our guest and nearly 30 year police veteran, Jon Stephenson [@johnwaynereloaded], joins us this week to do just that.

Negativity is a common theme in police work. Officers are constantly responding to traumatic, dangerous, and chaotic scenes and that stress becomes embedded in their psyche. Jon Stephenson talks about how a career in law enforcement nearly ruined his life until he chose to change his mindset and rid himself of the negative thinking addiction. The current political climate around police has also made it exponentially difficult to go on doing the work that others choose not to do. Get an insight into the mind of a dedicated officer of nearly 30 years. Listen NOW!
