This book has been written by a police officer, for police officers. The author has spent years researching and providing training for police on mental wellness and psychological resiliency. Mental wellness is not soft stuff, it is a matter of life and death. This is information every officer must know to survive their career. It is no longer enough that we go home at the end of our shift. We deserve to go home healthy, to go home happy, to go home as a well-adjusted human being.

The information contained in this book can help protect officers from the unspoken threats that have been haunting our profession for decades.

Ed Wojcicki, Executive Director of ILACP , was as early purchaser of this book and gives it high marks. "I personally benefited from the book -- especially from its promotion of psychological fitness -- and I am very grateful to Chief King for making this offer to help the Illinois Chiefs. It's a win-win for us, for anyone who reads the book, and for any department that decides to buy the book for its offers. Thanks to Laura for doing this for us and for the profession."
