Our Mission

 

We encourage law enforcement personnel to share their near-miss stories and the lessons learned from them to prevent fellow officers from being injured or killed. If we can help a brother or sister in blue make it home at the end of his or her shift, we have an obligation to act.

Sharing your story is an anonymous, secure, non-punitive, and confidential process.
