A very important film that must be seen by law enforcement and their family's
27 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Code 9 Officer Needs Assistance .is a hard hitting film that explores PTSD and Police Suicide as you watch the film you cant hold back the tears . when you hear the officers and retired officers talk about what they have seen on the streets in the line of duty, and the affect that it had on them. a lot of people don't know or understand why law enforcement officers suffer from PTSD- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. which come from the job. i cried when i watched the film you may ask your self why did i cry. because i am the brother of Detective Joseph Gibson Philadelphia Police Dept sadly my brother took his own life in Dec 2010 my brother Joseph was honored in this film

I am asking every Law Enforcement Officer if you need help please reach out and get the help you need
