Today’s read is from Tulsa, Oklahoma Police Maj. Travis Yates, the author of “The Courageous Police Leader: A Survival Guide for Combating Cowards, Chaos & Lies.” Yates wrote an emotional piece in “Law Officer,” the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement and for law enforcement.
Here’s a brief excerpt followed by the entire piece.
