Guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge, A Documentary About a Highway Patrol Officer Who Has Saved Many People From Jumping

“Guardian of the Golden Gate Bridge” tells the inspiring story of Kevin Briggs, a Marin-based California Highway Patrol Sergeant who has prevented hundreds of people from jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge over the past 22 years.

The Golden Gate Bridge has always been famous. It was the world’s longest suspension bridge when it was completed in 1937. Since then, it has become an iconic landmark of San Francisco and, tragically, one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. Few know this better than Kevin Briggs, a sergeant with the California Highway Patrol who has talked hundreds of people out of jumping.
