This week we are joined by two men who are very close to the EVRYMAN community. Bill McAuliffe and Daniel Strong are both law enforcement veterans and EVRYMAN members. Both have served for over 20 years and want to share their experiences, both enlightening and traumatic, that forced them to dig deeper and ‘do the work’ to be better men.
Bill McAuliffe is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard Reserve and 22 year veteran of civilian law enforcement. During his law enforcement career, Bill served in many capacities from Detention Officer to Deputy Sheriff, SWAT team member, and finally Professional Services Lieutenant. McAuliffe’s exit from law enforcement was when he was first introduced to mindfulness, mediation, and men’s emotional health work. Bill continues to serve public safety across the United States as the Director of Professional Services for Lexipol LLC. Lexipol provides public safety related policy, policy training, grant assistance, media, online learning, and mental health and wellness through its web-based platforms.
