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. Help us improve officer safety.

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