ONE COP'S JOURNEY FROM OPTIMISTIC ROOKIE TO JADED VETERAN.
Over his 26 year career in public service, Glen Williams experienced a string of traumatic events. Facing down deadly scenarios was just part of the job. Like many, Glen didn’t talk about what was left behind or how it weighed on him. Also like many, he developed PTSD, shut down, became self-destructive and ruined relationships. After his second divorce left him devastated, Glen hit bottom.
He spent the next three years in an isolated cabin facing himself for the first time. Through deep, self-accountable, soul searching, Glen worked through the PTSD and created a new life filled with purpose and close, fulfilling relationships.
Bridging the Gap is a part memoir, part self-help recounting Glen's journey to a fulfilling, purpose-filled life—through changing the way he looked at himself.
HE REBUILT HIMSELF.

A police officers life is not set and compartmentalized. (This book) is written as life goes...ups and downs, good and bad. If you want real police stories this is definitely a book you should read.
Open and Humble

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.
