On July 7, 2016, Dallas, Texas officers were ambushed and five of them perished. The journey that followed in our own department after this massacre was one that prompted the creation of a spousal support group that was sorely needed and evidently lacking as spouses and family members were terrified to send their officer to work, fearing the worst.
We, as law enforcement family members, do not get to pick and choose what calls they go out on, what days of the week or hours of the day they work, and as a bonus - we watch them walk out the door knowing they will be dressed in a bullet-proof vest and a target-seeking uniform to complete their job duties for the day.
It is unnerving, but rewarding. It is pride-filled, but terrifying.
We need each other, which is why we are proponents of some type of Spousal/Family Support within your own department. We would love to help you form your own group within your own department.
