  • Brian McEwen
    Sergeant, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, IN

As a result, public trust is negatively affected and severe officer discipline—often termination—become inevitable. It is vital that agencies break this pattern and embrace early intervention as a method of minimizing the damage ultimately done to officer safety, public safety and officers’ livelihoods when cumulative issues—left untreated—rise to the level of crisis.
