EP 32 – Make Sure I’m Doing It For The Right Reasons – Tey Lynn-Jones

Tey Lynn-Jones is a Constable with the Metropolitan Police in London, England. He's been in law enforcement for 18 months and he's the first international police officer that has been on the podcast.

Besides being a constable, Tey is also a professional boxer with a impressive record and this dude loves to run.

I really enjoyed speaking with him and I learned some stuff, like the UK name for a dumpster… a “Skip”.

Below are some of the topics /social media posts that Tey and I discussed, broken down by each segment of the podcast.
