Eric Ray starts the show sharing some big news with Glenn Langenburg and the listeners. The guys are then joined by AC Brogdon, president of the California State Division of the IAI for an discussion on the importance of the work that we do. AC shares some stories of his early life, and how those experiences shaped the person that he is and how that continues to inspire and motivate him. It's vitally important for examiners and investigators to remember the victims as they do their work and that it's not just another day at the office for those directly affected by the crime. Part of maintaining that motivation is to recognize that this job comes with unique stress, especially for those collecting and documenting evidence at the crmie scene. Employee assistance programs are available through most agencies to help all of us deal with the terrible things that we can exposed to every day.
