I Wasn’t Suppose to be a Cop Again – Tyler Provost – EP 76

This was another really fun interview with Tyler Provost. Tyler is a 6 year police officer from California and former professional baseball player.

If you were a regular watcher of the TV show, “Live PD”, you may recognize Tyler. He was often featured as one of the regular officers on the live episodes.

I suggest you follow Tyler on social media. He's gone through some things and he has used those tough times to, not as strength to continue in law enforcement, but also to inspire others.
