Sex crimes do take a toll on the investigators. I only do a few of these investigation each year. I’ve found that I need to go punch and kick the heavy bag in the gym of our police station before I can go home to my family. It’s like draining the poison out of me so that it doesn’t have a chance to take hold. Terrible.
Thank you for keeping children safe. I’m sure no one can really understand what it’s like to do your job. It would be very hard not become cynical.
The cop I knew also took up heavy exercise at that point. It helped.
