In Memory of Detective Randolph Holder

  No one knows better the danger that a tense circumstance can present than police in the United States. Constantly under pressure to control people who are guaranteed rights that provide them a wide latitude of no control, the scenarios that citizens can present range from the mundane to sheer terror, even for a trained professional.

Trauma | The Wounds Left on Officers We Don’t See - Part 2
