I just returned from WINx Chicago -an amazing TED-style event geared toward police and law enforcement audiences. The acronym WIN stands for “What’s Important Now,” a theme that was introduced to me by my friend Brian Willis, who also helped put on the event.

A New Discussion in Police Training
October was a busy month, but I truly saw some of my hardest work pay off. A big first for me was training with Chris Dumont, a Trooper with the Massachusetts State Police.

Luckily for me, Chris is a trained paramedic and he jumped into action, making critical decisions that saved my life.
