About The Squad Room

Every cop has a squad room. Maybe you call it something different – a briefing room, or whatever, but the purpose is the same: to share information, provide updates that are important to peace officers, and engage in on-going training to make ourselves better cops. We might even learn things there that save our lives.

The Squad Room is taking that virtual. It’s a podcast and blog developed to optimizing the physical, emotional, mental, environmental, and occupational health and wellness of law enforcement officers around the world.

We tackle any subject that might improve our wellness and commitment to ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities that we serve.

We approach this in three ways. First, we seek out and interview subject matter experts who can share knowledge with peace officers. Second, we find inspirational active duty and retired law enforcement officers who have something important to share. Third, we’re part documentary as Garrett TeSlaa, the host and owner of The Squad Room, tries to apply the lessons learned to his own life.
