About Kevin Mede

I was born and raised in Washington State. I have been a fully commissioned Law Enforcement officer since 1999.  Throughout my career, I have worked in Patrol, as an FTO, Patrol Sergeant, Crisis Negotiator, SWAT Commander, Major Crimes Sergeant, Union President, and Patrol Lieutenant.  I also currently serve as my agency’s Peer Support Coordinator.  I am also a certified FBI National Academy Associates trainer for Officer Wellness and Resiliency. 

I have had my share of struggles over those years from on-the-job injuries to on and off the job trauma and have come out the other side intact. 

My goal for coaching is to use my experiences to provide you with an unbiased, realistic, and confidential perspective to help you move from where you are to where you want to be.     

Success is a moving target and is defined by the individual.  I will collaborate with you to find what works for you – meeting you where you are at.  After that, it’s a matter of establishing a roadmap that I’ll help you stick to.   

Performance, happiness, success – none of it is one dimensional.  We all know if things get out of balance; our sleep, our health, our focus – other aspects of our life suffer as well.  In our industry, we are problem solvers.  We are the helpers.  But when it comes to our own lives; our performance, our career advancement, our happiness, and work/life balance – who helps us?  That’s where coaching comes in.

Testimonials

From a seasoned wellness coordinator:

I have been doing the wellness stuff for a very long time and have seen a lot of resources, products offered, etc. and I am super impressed with this program and the proactive approach around officer wellness versus the reactive model that is more common. 

Great "outside in" perspective to issues I have. 

I began the coaching program in early 2022, and had the opportunity to be paired up with Mike Lawson. During this time, I was going through some major mental health struggles, including depression and PTSD. Mike was amazing at being able to help me get a better balance between work and life. He also helped me with some of the trauma I've dealt with in my life. I could say more about the coaching program and what it provides to those in it. I've made a lifelong friend and someone who has a great "outside in" perspective to issues I have. 

Something much needed in law enforcement and I look forward to my next session.

Chris was great! He listened and had great feedback. I left the meeting feeling encouraged and immediately scheduled a follow-up session.
