      Brothers and Sisters,

      By now, most of you know that one of our own passed away yesterday. I have struggled with addressing this issue over the last day and a half. I have read a great deal of posts, emails, and texts regarding our brother and the choice he made to end his suffering. Many of you have called and asked what you can do.

      For the first time, in a very long time, I am at a loss for words. Chuck was a great guy, with many friends, none of which saw this coming. During my career we have had a number of brothers and sisters choose the same option. To date, I have never heard anyone say they knew it was going to happen.

      Our culture MUST change. We have to give our family permission to need help. Early in my career I had my own critical incidents, and "old timers" gave me the lines to give to department psychologists to get cleared and back to duty as soon as possible. Each subsequent event I have used the same tactics and was each time I cleared very quickly. To be honest, more quickly than I should have ever been. I have passed those techniques on to other brothers and sisters and "helped" them back to duty just as quickly. Over the last couple of years I have come to realize that those "old timers" didn't help me, they just provided me the same tools they were taught.

      Only in rare circumstances will we ever see one of our own in crises. We have learned to cover it up, and pretend that everything is fine, we must learn to ask for help. From my own personal experiences we are rarely fine. Our culture must change.

      Last week I attended the National FOP Conference. While there I attended three workshops:

      Critical Incidents - Stress Management
      Preventing Police Suicide
      Diversity Committee

      I had hoped to bring back contacts and new skill sets. I did not think that days later we would be addressing this as a family. Words alone cannot achieve what took generations to build. We have to work together, and allow each other time to heal. There is no quick fix to what we deal with, but there is a process. Our department, and your family, lost one of our own yesterday. We cannot ever forget him, or his loss. What we can do is stand up and say no more. We can be better, we have to be.

      Today I met with some of our department leaders, and I know that everyone involved has made a decision to address our own family. If you find yourself in a position of need please get help. If you don't have anyone else to call, my number is 816-806-8634.

      We must pay attention to those in need. Suicide is not an option anymore. We have to find a way to save our own. We spend our lives protecting those who cannot protect themselves. It's time we do the same for our own family. Our culture will change.

      Rest in Peace Brother.

      (The below article was referenced from the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund's BlogSpot page.)
      It was a perfect baseball day for the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium. With the temperature topping out at 93 degrees under a bright sun, the Royals took an early 4-0 lead against the Houston Astros in the first inning during their annual ‘Law Enforcement Day at the K’ on Sunday, July 26.
      More than 500 law enforcement officers, and their friends and family, came out to the ballpark to support this special event, as the Royals won their fifth straight game with the 5-1 final score, remaining at the top of the American League.
      The Cass County (MO) Sheriff’s Department Honor Guard presented the colors during a pregame ceremony in honor of Missouri and Kansas law enforcement personnel. The event benefited the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
      Our special thanks to Ariel Peralta and the Kansas City Royals Group Sales, the Missouri Chiefs of Police Association and the Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police. Check out www.lawmemorial.org/sports for the latest law enforcement appreciation sporting events to honor law enforcement.
