Come listen to David Perry with the VALOR Officer Safety and Wellness Program; Chief Wayne Nero of the Georgetown, Texas, Police Department; and Director of Public Safety Alma Burke with the University of Southern California and get some tips about taking a “second second” and being more intentional in your actions.
