During his keynote speech, Paton shares his amazing story of living with a mental illness and his process
towards recovery.

“Perhaps the largest turning point in my recovery story was when 30 officers applauded after my first ever presentation in a class. One of the officers who had previously arrested me just happened to be in that class and we hugged in front of everyone. Since that time I have proudly been involved with the training of over 1,000 officers The biggest shame of my life has been my criminal record – now I get to take those experiences and help my community through my presentation “Handcuffs to Hope.”
