In 1997, the year that fictional Vermont State Trooper Bruce Sutton dies in the line of duty, 175 actual U.S. and Canadian law enforcement officers died in the real world.
In the most recent year with data available (2019), four U.S. Law Enforcement Officers were killed in the line of duty while performing unspecified investigative activities. (Source: Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, 2019, U.S. Dept. of Justice / FBI annual report)
Teens are sometimes independent and adventure-prone. Willful, experimental, and thrill-seeking behavior are normal parts of growing up, but they can lead to risky or even damaging choices and activities.
ParentUpVT.org provides simple and direct advice for how to spot, prevent, and address potential problems. We all want our families to succeed, but we are not always equipped with all the tools, knowledge or temperament to make that easy... and a perfectly normal teenager can make that seem impossible on some days! That's okay, it feels impossible for the teenager, too. Children are our gift to the future, and ParentUp has some good advice for protecting and polishing that treasure.
Check out the webpage link to the right if you have questions or concerns about your teen and mental wellness or substance abuse.

"No ambulance comes. No nurse, no physician, no concerned faces looming over his injuries. After he is finally still, the hunters are the next persons to see him, three years later. Neither they, nor the police who come, nor anyone else at all, knows who he was. The bleached and mossy bones and threads have no story to tell by that time but that of death. Not even a knife-blade nick on a rib to speak for him: Wrongful Death, I was killed. No. These remains will be a mute witness."
"All three are bikers. No, not the in-shape, spandex-wearing, athletic, Tour-de-France kind; this trio are of the hedonistic, leather-wearing, alcoholic, motorcycle-riding, dangerous sort. The ones you lock your car doors against when they pull up next to you at the gas station. When these people throw down on you, bones, or maybe even lives, are at stake."
"Is there anyone, besides his handlers in their dark suits, with their quiet offices, their unmarked cars and closed courtrooms and myriad boxes of case files, wondering? Where is he? As first the days and then the weeks and finally months go by? Is there still someone waiting? A mother, a sister, a brother, a spouse, or God forbid, children, hoping on some days but knowing on most not to hope because he went away to work one year and never came back?"
