Michael Slupe

Sheriff of Butler County

As a law enforcement officer, PhD in CJ and lifetime learner of our profession, I can not recommend Matt’s presentation any more than to say it’s a must. As you listen, you know who you are..Matt just has the guts to say it. #IWillListen. I’ll be your midnight call. Matt needs to be at your conference, agency in service or speaking to your team. Call me, DM me and I’ll explain more.

The Journey to Midnight is Matt Griffin’s memoir about his traumatic journey as US Navy Search and Rescue swimmer to a career as a police officer and undercover cop. Matt shares the heartbreak of divorce, the joy of single fatherhood, the dark streets of the drug underworld, and the thing that almost killed him, which claimed the lives of 228 police officers in 2019, and 22 military veterans per day - SUICIDE.
