From The Badge of Life's January Newletter concerning Code 9The producers of the video trailer, "Code 9: Officer Needs Assistance" have asked that we continue an appeal for donations that will help them finish the final documentary. Badge of Life is giving its full support to this project—it’s a "first" and desperately needed.
Dozens—hundreds—of videos and articles have been produced with the worn out advice of, "Get help when you need it." Although well meaning, it’s not enough. Police suicides continue to rise and the number of officers suffering from PTSD (and not committing suicide) is staggering. Officers mask their symptoms better than any group, and by the time they are at the cliff’s edge it is often too late for them to even hear the message.
Code 9 brings us into the 21st Century. It drives home the point that, while help is there if they need it, there is much officers can do to prepare themselves and "inoculate themselves" to trauma. With training, they will take advantage of their individual strengths, build new ones, and have the resources at hand BEFORE trauma strikes—and not be helpless when it does. This doesn’t mean a combat course—this means the even harder work of learning one’s self, getting a "mental health check" every year and having a therapist already "in their pocket" if needed.
It’s a New Dawn for a culture that is suspicious of and resistant to change, no matter how greatly needed. We encourage you to view the trailer and read more about this project at CODE 9, OFFICER NEEDS ASSISTANCE.
More importantly, give them your help, by even a small donation or by spreading the word. This is a message that will save lives. Your partner could be one of them.
