I will win because...

There isn’t a cop out there who doesn’t want to go home safely at the end of each shift—it doesn’t matter if you’re in patrol, corrections, investigations, or administration, we all want to “win” every confrontation. But have you given much thought as to why you want to stay safe? It is human nature to run from danger, and yet we’ve all chosen a profession where we run toward the shots, jump into other people’s fights, willingly make traffic stops not knowing what we may encounter, or work in prisons knowing that each day we’ll be dealing with nothing but convicted felons.

In the very first hour we show you a dramatic and gut wrenching video of a young deputy who doesn’t win, who is shot to death in a cruel and senseless encounter with a madman, and then we follow it with a slide that says: “I will win because...”
