And I looked for a national resource and there wasn't one, and so as a result, The Wounded Blue was born."08:46 "Post-traumatic stress is as real as a bullet. And many many many departments still refuse to recognize that that's even an injury. It's really shocking."12:06 "We call it our SEAL approach: Support, Education, Assistance, and Legislation. But I gotta tell you, we're fighting a really uphill battle."16:37 "We call it the K-9 Companion Program and we've given a number of these dogs to injured and disabled officers. And I gotta tell you, I have one guy contact me said, you saved my life with this dog. I was so alone. I was so lonely."18:26 "Our allegiance is to no administrations. Our only allegiance is to the men and women that contact us or we contact because we reach out a lot, and say you know what, you're not alone in this fight. You got somebody watching your six."-----------------------------SUMMARYIn this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, Sgt. Betsy Smith interviews Lt.
