"...he was playing that game at school where they choke themselves."

Mike Bleak has served as commissioner in Iron County, Utah since 2016. He previously worked in public safety for more than two decades, most recently as a detective with the Cedar City Police Department. Here, Mike and his wife Amy talk about “the choking game,” a topic Mike is passionate about preventing and speaks about close to home, across the United States, and abroad. Mike is also open and candid about experiencing post-traumatic stress from his career in law enforcement.
