Show Notes

The mental and emotional toll that the law enforcement profession takes on even the most stalwart police officers can be debilitating. Such was the case with Doug Monda, a hard-charging, heavy hitting SWAT team leader for the Cocoa Police Department in Brevard County, Florida. In spite of being a triathlete and born for police work, he was badly affected by the daily scenes he was called to and the lack of basic humanity in the criminal element of society. After being badly injured and told he'd never run again, the pressures became too great, and he attempted to take his own life. Thankfully, he failed. He now runs an organization he founded called Survive First, which comes to the aid of cops in crisis, and he has been directly instrumental in talking many of his fellow cops "off the ledge", so to speak.
