In the previous weeks, we’ve heard from Drs. Blumerg and Shane on police integrity and the internal disciplinary structures found in many law enforcement agencies across the globe. In this episode, we welcome a 19-year veteran of an urban police department, Sergeant Ryan, into the studio. Interestingly, he posits that integrity – as civilians know it – may not actually be possible for police officers.

Sgt. Ryan amidst some essential self-care.
