First responders who may come across a high profile crime scene, such as in Connecticut, have a counseling mechanism to help with their emotions.
Peoria County Sheriff Mike McCoy tells WMBD's Greg and Dan around here it's called a Critical Incident Review Team.
"They talk about your feelings, you get to be angry, you get to fell bad. It's a great conversation," says McCoy. "You have someone to talk to who understands."
McCoy says those counselors helped him when Deputy Jim Mulay was killed in an accident in 2003...a deputy McCoy recruited.
"Finally after a couple of days they knocked on my door and said, 'Guess what? It's your time to talk,'" explains McCoy. "I said no at first but it's good."
McCoy says, in most cases, officers will speak to counselors not from their own police agency.
