Editor's Note:

The P1 First Person series is a little like the opinion page in your local newspaper. Here, PoliceOne Members (and occasionally our columnists) candidly share their own unique cop’s-eye-view of the world. This is a platform from which individual officers can share their own personal insights on issues confronting cops today, as well as opinions, observations, and advice on living life behind the thin blue line.

This is a place for you, our members, to have your voice heard, so e-mail us your story.

Trainer's reflection: Who is it really all about?
P1 Exclusive
There is a fine line between being a role model and being arrogant. If you are teaching a police fitness class, it’s okay to use your "I-lost-a-hundred-pounds-through-diet-and-exercise" story to inspire them, but it’s a bit over the top to regale them with a list of all the marathons you’ve run since. A good trainer uses the classroom (or the range or the mat) not to showcase their own skills and abilities, but to transfer that confidence and competence to their students ... Full column
