"The video shot by customers is very hard to watch and the actions in it are not representative of our Starbucks Mission and Values. Creating an environment that is both safe and welcoming for everyone is paramount for every store," Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson said in a statement.

California Highway Patrol

As law enforcement officers, we took an oath to protect and serve the people of California, and retired Sergeant Kevin Briggs is a shining example of taking that oath and putting it to action. For 18 years he patrolled the Golden Gate Bridge and prevented over 200 people from committing suicide. He said it best, “All it takes is one person to change another person’s life. Listen to understand.”

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 800-273-8255 (24 hours a day) or www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

Muse Storytelling
He was a highway patrol officer. The area he was asked to patrol included the Golden Gate Bridge.

It turns out, the Golden Gate is one of the world’s leading spots for loss of life to suicide.

But as highway patrol, Kevin received no training on how to handle such complex situations. Imagine countless people leaping off the bridge and being totally powerless to make any difference.

One day, after losing somebody after a long attempt to try and talk them back over the rail, he’d had enough.

This is the story of what Kevin decided to do about that problem. And what he learned about helping those with suicide and depression.

Congratulations CTC III-2017!

CHP - Academy
Congratulations CTC III-2017! I know that I speak for the entire California Highway Patrol Academy staff when I say how proud I am of you. You have truly earned the right to call yourselves Officers of the California Highway Patrol. Savor this moment and celebrate your success with the family and friends who have supported you to this point. Always remember where you have been and never forget the excitement you felt today. Earn the right to wear your new badge each day by serving the people of California selflessly and honorably.
