Introduction
A decorated veteran of law enforcement, Renae Griggs is seeking to shift the culture of policing in a more humane direction for the nation's 800,000 officers. She aims to remove the barriers that she believes have perpetuated a subculture in policing that separates officers from their humanity and often results in abusive and self-destructive behavior, including rates of domestic violence and suicide that are two or more times the national average.
