In this episode of Microcast Monday I want to take a moment and talk about the "us versus them mentality." I had this mindset for many years where I thought if someone didn't work in the criminal justice field, or didn't have a gun and badge then they couldn't trusted. Over the years I learned how detrimental that mindset was, at least for me. Sooner or later you will leave this great profession and then what? Maybe you want to work in the private sector? Maybe you want to start your own business? Do you think the mindset of "us versus them" is going to help you succeed? Probably not. You have realize that most people are good and we deal with only the fraction of people that are doing bad. When this happens over and over our mindset becomes jaded. However,you can begin to recognize it and take steps to change or mindset. I am not saying compromise your officer safety, but I am saying it's good to develop and cultivate friendships outside of law enforcement.

If you have the above mindset how did it develop? Do you know? Write it down and then realize that these are not reflective of society as a whole. Remember you can always change your mindset.

Happy Thanksgiving Week and everyone be safe!

Have a great week and go conquer your day.
