Two years ago, Lindsay was shot three times in the line of duty.
We talk about that frightening night, the mental and physical toll it has taken on her and her family, and her advice for others who’ve survived a traumatic event.
“It does really help me to be able to have conversations with people that are going through things so that I can reassure them. Everything you’re feeling is completely out of this world but normal after a traumatic incident,” she says.
Lindsay tells me how she came to her life-changing decision to retire after a 16-year career in law enforcement.
She shares the details of her emotional final radio call, and the moving words she had for her colleagues.
Lindsay also opens up about how she felt as a black woman and a police officer watching recent events unfold from home during her medical leave.
Plus, she tells me about one of her proudest career achievements, how her two young children keep her busier than ever during the pandemic, and what she hopes others will learn from her story.
