    Clarke Paris retired as a sergeant with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department after a 27 year career.  He is the Creator/Producer of award-winning documentary film on Police Stress/Suicide, The Pain Behind The Badge and author of My Life For Your Life (Book on Police Stress/Suicide) and the children’s book Daddy, I Worry About You.  Every paid registrant will receive a DVD of the film The Pain Behind The Badge and a copy of the book My Life For Your Life.
