The #fightingptsdvicpol campaign has always been about spreading awareness for PTSD and mental health issues for our vicpol members.
At times, I post about looking out for each other and making sure you ask "How are you going" "Are you OK"
This morning I took a step back and asked myself "how am I going" because at times we are so busy working and trying to help others that we sometimes forget about ourselves.
You need to find that quiet time to reflect, reset and work on your health and your goals.
Ask yourself "What do I need to do to keep myself mentally and physically fit"
For me at this point in time is to get my motivation back and I also need to slow down on social media. It takes away my time from my precious family.
For the next 12 weeks, I will be training for the Geelong Half Ironman triathlon and I need to hold myself accountable. I also need to improve on my eating habits hence why I am afraid to say my donut intake will be put on hold.
Please eveyone look after yourself. Once you do that, you can assist others.
Just keep calm like our mascot Zara in the photo.
To date the campaign has raised over $35,753.46 in donations.
These donations are being held in the Blue ribbon mental health fund and will assist to the Blue ribbon foundation to continue its valuable work with proceeds to support the WHY (We Hear You) program for mental health services and initiatives for those who are or have served

It is always a somber time when you hear of an on duty death. A loss of a brother or sister bonded by a purpose strikes the heart. When it hits so close to home, however, the cut truly runs a little deeper.
Gardena PD Motor Officer Toshio Hirai went EOW for the last time on November 15, 2018 after a fatal collision. We are having shirts made that will be $20 each, and all the proceeds will go to his family through the GPD POA. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. *PS, I know the flag is backwards... it was a rough draft thrown together to see if we could generate interest.

I encourage all citizens to get out and do a ride along with your local law enforcement agency.
A principle of social distance theory is that the more socially distant an individual or a community feels from police, the less likely there is to be trust and confidence in their abilities or willingness to serve and protect. The less social distance, the more positive public attitudes and willingness to report and cooperate.
This is part of a solution that can be worked from both sides. Go out, get involved, and help promote positive community relations.
