  • Having a life outside of public safety is critical to surviving this career. This lesson provided some good strategies and ways to engage outside of work. I strongly believe that having relationships with people outside of the field is essential to staying firmly planted in reality and being less cynical. I also think engaging with neighbors and community members in our own community (not just at work) can help foster positive relationships between the public and law enforcement. I’m also a big proponent of volunteering a couple times a year to give back and remember why we do the jobs we do.

    I also thought Stockman’s Time/Life model was interesting:
    1. Leisure activity
    2. Growth and development
    3. Physical fitness
    4. Work
    5. Family
    6. Survival activity
    7. Community involvement

    I think all of these things are important to have a well-rounded life. It’s especially important in the shift work world to carve time out for these different pieces to make sure we have good balance.
