Ten Feet Tall and Not Quite Bullet Proof with Australia’s Cameron Hardiman

Episode Description

Welcome to Episode 81 Brought to you by Vertical Valor Magazine 

As we continue our series on surviving a career in public safety we bring you a conversation with Cameron Hardiman the author of Ten Feet Tall and not quite Bullet Proof.

Cameron served as a Victoria Police Officer where he worked as a patrol officer and as a tactical flight officer. He later became an Australian Federal Police Officer.

During the conversation, Cameron outlines his career as a police officer as well as his time as a tactical flight officer. We spend a good deal of time talking about PTSD and some of the forms of treatment that worked well for Cameron.

Our goal in having these conversations is that it will force each one of us to evaluate where we stand and provide some resources.
