I’m a Cop and I Have Tourette’s – Tourette’s Cop – EP 79

Officer Craig a.k.a “Tourette's Cop”, is a police officer from Minnesota, who has 10 years on the job and he suffers from Tourette syndrome. A neurological condition that causes “Tics”…. which are sudden twitches, movements, or sounds that people do repeatedly.

I have been following Craig on Instagram for a while and I find his profile and story to be very inspirational.

He has been making a impact on others who suffer from Tourette and I wanted to have him on, to find out more about “TS” and to find out how it effects his ability to be a cop.
