Chief Swoboda here –
I recently attended one of our dayshift roll call briefings. After the information summary was shared from the previous day's calls for service – fights, suicides, mental health crises – the lieutenant (who is a yoga instructor) gave an overview on the importance of breathing and self-care. As I participated in the controlled breathing exercises, I was overcome with appreciation for this approach. At a time where being a police officer is fraught with danger, dehumanizing, and calls to defund, the importance of slowing things down and breathing to center ourselves before heading out to serve our community is critical.

We want our community to understand and feel proud of the service our officers provide every day. I sure know I do.
