I am back in the Hunters Bay Radio studio with Lynda Cranney,
talking about life as a female police officer. We chatted about what’s important--
Just Showing Up Yourself and each other.
Lynda shares: “It’making sure you are showing up for yourself, physically
and mentally— and staying healthy. And checking in with your partners after a
bad call, or even after a good call. Always good to check in on every call and ask,
“Hey, how did that make you feel?””
I added, “It is so important, isn’t it? And to check in afterwards as well.
And to keep checking in.”
Lynda: “Doesn’t have to be the next day. It can be the next week.
And when you see that they’re having a bad day—it could be a month later.
Yes, because a grief attack can happen anytime.
This is good advice for everyone—even when you’re not a police officer.
Take care of yourself and check in with others!
Lynda has been a police officer for 28 years. If a young female asks you,
would you say this is a good career to pursue?
“Absolutely. It’s a great career. It can take you in a lot of different directions.
It’s never the same and it’s rewarding. It’s sad, it’s good, it’s bad, it’s
everything—the whole gamut.”
Thank you, Lynda, for everything that you do. And thank you to every
police officer and first responder, for choosing careers to help and keep us safe!
Please don’t ever forget to:
Just Show Up for Yourself First and
Just Show Up for Each Other!
