Police PTSD | Front line officers under immense pressure | Sunday Night

Detective Sergeant Ashley Bryant joined the police force to proudly serve and protect the public. It was a job – and a career – he loved and lived for. He was a good cop with a wife and young family.

Nonetheless, his wife Deb wants you to hear his story – about the appalling way so many police are treated when they suffer mental illnesses as a result of the job, how they’re made to feel like criminals as private insurance companies stalk them and put them under daily surveillance, looking for any excuse to deny their claim. Melissa Doyle leads this special investigation.
