City Beat Video Episode 16: Family Support, Officer Health, Families in the Department, and S.A.F.E.

In this edition of City Beat...the job of a law enforcement officer doesn't end when the badge and uniform come off. It's a career that becomes a lifestyle, and as a result, often affects an officers' life at home. We'll talk to family members of rookie and veteran cops about why family support is such an important part of an officer's life. And when it comes to needing support, the men and women behind the badge have resources on the job as well. For years the peer support program has been reaching out to officers who are dealing with trauma, either at home or at work. The law enforcement chaplains offer a similar service by providing a caring ear and guidance in dealing with some of the devastation that officers sometimes see. And they say law enforcement is one big family - for some people, that couldn't be more true. Brothers...sisters...moms...dads...husbands and wives...the Sacramento Police Department has them all. We'll introduce you to three different families who have found careers in police work together. Finally, our Above and Beyond story features a husband and wife, both Sergeants for SPD, who spend their time away from work helping teens make the most of their high school years. Join us for the next City Beat.
