Glen Williams spent 26 years in law enforcement as a patrol officer and detective. Risking his life was just part of the job. He grappled with the worst of humanity and looked death in the face. And, of course, he couldn't save everyone. Trauma as a way of life takes a toll. Like many, Glen did not talk about these things. To cope, he indulged in self-destructive behavior—and eventually developed PTSD. After his second divorce, Mr. Williams spent three years alone at his cabin and did some deep self-accountable, soul searching.
Bridging the Gap
Bridging the Gap focuses on reframing self and community perceptions through the practice of accountability.
It is designed to reduce the effects of PTSD, divorce, and suicide in high risk, trauma exposed populations. A natural result of these changes is improved community relations.
