Featuring Brian Knowler

In 2004, with five years of service time, Brian went through one of the worst experiences an officer can undergo – being directly involved with the death of someone you know. Brian tells the story of the impact of that night – depression, thoughts of suicide, alcohol, and work all creating a gap between himself, his family, and his own spirit.
