Officer Wellness with Brian Manley
During Brian Manley’s time as Chief of Austin Police Department, he built a foundation for prioritizing the health and wellness of his fellow officers. It was his dedication to this vision that made him such an excellent Police Chief at Austin Police Department, a perfect fit with Off Duty Management, and now an expert authority worth listening to.
Brian prioritizes spreading the message of officer wellness every chance he gets, which has officially manifested in his very own podcast, Officer Wellness with Brian Manley. Each episode, Brian plans to sit down with fellow law enforcement veterans and experts to discuss every facet of health and wellness impacting officers today. He’s starting this podcast in the hopes of spreading awareness and prompting conversation.
For the premiere episode, Brian has invited the Chaplain of Austin Police Department and long-time friend, Rick Randall, to sit down for an enlightening conversation stemming from their time working on the force together. Mr. Randall has been with Austin PD for over 15 years, serving as the Division Director of Health and Wellness, which makes him the perfect co-host to kick off the podcast.
However, this is only the beginning. Brian has over 30 years of experience in law enforcement, during which time he’s made many diverse connections. Future guests will provide unique perspectives from their own personal experiences, as well as their specific field. Brian’s goal is to cover as many corners of officer wellness as possible to provide a well-rounded vision into the often-overlooked challenges affecting the men and women risking their lives every day in our communities.
From physical and financial wellness, mental and emotional wellness, all the way to social and spiritual wellness, this podcast is looking to investigate them all. Officers never know which combination of struggles will affect them, and Brian has seen how each issue can take its toll in different ways.
