In this episode, we welcome Scott Taylor, a police officer, and Peer Support Member with the City of Warren Police Department. In addition, Scott is the State of Michigan Officer Wellness liaison to the National Fraternal Order of Police, or FOP. The FOP is the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 367,000 members.
During his 25+ year career, Scott Taylor has worked as a Patrol Officer, a School Resource Officer, a Field Training Officer, a Special Operation Unit member, a Crime Scene Technician, and served on the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force. Scott is proud of all the positions he has served as a law enforcement officer for nearly three decades. But in his words, providing peer support for his fellow police officers is the most important and impactful job he’s ever had.
