Sergeant Kevin R. Briggs, Ret.

"Guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge" 

Sergeant Kevin R. Briggs, Ret., a retired California Highway Patrol officer who spent many years patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. While on patrol, he encountered numerous individuals clinging to life by a thread – individuals who had lost hope and could see no way out of their current situation - ready to jump off the bridge to what they assumed was a sudden death and ending of their pain and hopelessness. Briggs, through his compassion, gentle voice, eye contact, and his innate ability of  “listening to understand” encouraged more than 200 individuals over his career to either not go over the bridge’s rail or come back to solid ground from where they had been standing precariously out on the chord of the bridge and start a new chapter in their life. These challenging, but rewarding efforts earned him the nickname “Guardian of  the Golden Gate Bridge.”
