After serving 18 years as a Council Bluffs Police Officer, it's safe to say that Officer Matt Brinkman is a veteran. But one thing that's new to Officer Brinkman is his role as a Mosaic Ambassador and Community Advisory Committee member.
Brinkman's involvement with Mosaic began in March of this year after he attended a Discover the Possibilities tour in Council Bluffs.
"As a Community Affairs Officer, I go out into the community and attend events a lot. I was happy to learn more about Mosaic and hear stories from some of the people they support," said Brinkman.
Brinkman left the tour understanding more about Mosaic's role in serving people with mental illness, and was motivated to get involved.
"We are looking forward to having a give-and-take with Mosaic, and know it will make us more knowledgeable and help us have a better understanding of the work they do."
Brinkman is hoping to jump-start that give-and-take by holding a question-and-answer session with the people we serve and Mosaic staff. Mosaic looks forward to partnering with Brinkman and the Council Bluffs Police Department!
