Talking Filthy Police Podcast

Talking Filthy Police Podcast

Talking Filthy Podcast is about the mental and physical health of our men and women in blue or green police uniforms. Our coffee and convo is all about helping cops!

No fancy podcast equipment, just some real talk in hopes to help cops and their mental health. We share perspectives, thoughts, ideas and experiences of those that have and still are serving as police officers

All Episodes

What an amazing year we have had on this podcast! We started out trying to find what was the best topic and method for us. It was discovered that we had a passion for helping our officers be operationally ready. We aren't necessarily talking about running and gunning but more about how you keep your head on straight and ready. We opened Pandora's box of a massive amount of resources and people that want to help cops. We give a run down of the upcoming shows and guests that we have. Have a Christmas gift? Then check out some of our guests who author books and hook up a fellow cop or family member with that awesome book such as Vic Ferrari at Vic Ferrari BooksWe are not health professionals but merely a conduit to pass on information and resources to LEOs who may need or want it.

People just don't understand the hardships posing for a fireman’s calendar shoot can have on firefighters! In the next episode, we are going to break down this painful process with 30-year, Tucson firefighter veteran, Clint Moss. In all seriousness, we’ll discuss the difference between firefighter and police officer rehab and recovery after difficult shifts or calls. What does the firefighter community do differently from law enforcement? Are there things LEOs should be looking at from our brothers and sisters in red? Take for instance the way a truck of 4-6 fire personnel can lean on each other after a tragic call versus the police officer who drives away solo from that same horrible call.Do firefighters take on a more serious mindset about rehab and recovery for both their physical and mental wellness? I would propose that there is a difference, and LEOs can learn many things from them.We are not health professionals but merely a conduit to pass on information and resources to LEOs who may need or want it.

Money Money Money...Almighty dolla! Stress in law enforcement can come from all kinds of places, and finances are no exception. The cop spends more hoping that they can work off duty or overtime and then soon all they do is work. There is a way to make, save and invest money and there are people that can help you. This is a must for all cops to at least sit down with someone and find out where they can improve.Our guest Mark E. from Galloway Public Safety Financial walks us through his personal and professional experiences with money. Mark is a dedicated veteran police supervisor, detective and training supervisor who also has a degree in finances too.Find out more from the folks at https://www.galloway911.com/This show is sponsored by Filthy Pirate Coffee and can be found on all social media platforms and https://filthypirate.coffee/Hit the like, share, follow and subscribe buttons.
