Is There Something Going On At Home?

IS THERE SOMETHING GOING ON AT HOME? gives a voice to the Spouses, Significant Others, and Children of the Police Family. When a Police Officer suffers from trauma, their family will suffer right along with them.

Deborah Louise Ortiz, along with her husband, Michael, and daughter, Angela, tell their story as a one time DEA Agent struggles in retirement with addiction and PTSD. Ultimately leading to devastating consequences for the family.

Rachel Medlin & Scott Medlin share their experiences as a young couple enduring the fallout of a demanding Police Career, which left Rachel at home acting as a single parent and a once strong relationship slowly crumbling.

Dr. Olivia Johnson, backed by her extensive research in developing the Fatal 10 of Law Enforcement Suicide, weighs in on both stories, while also explaining the importance of inoculation as it relates to the Mental Health & Relationship issues Police Officers will face during their careers.

Finally, retired Police Officer, Speaker, and Author Glen Williams relates his work in the field of Relationships & the Police Family to the stories in the film, fostering a message to bridge the gap in communication between a Police Officer and Spouse.

These stories will both inspire and educate, as we explore some of the most common and relatable issues all of us will face during & after our careers.
