2019 Impact of Trauma on Law Enforcement Conference

Organization(s): Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (VDCJS)

Sep 17, 2019Sep 18, 2019

Law enforcement officers are often exposed to traumatic events and the cumulative effects of witnessing human suffering and tragedies. While law enforcement officers are trained to handle the most critical incidents, like homicides and active shooter events, the daily accumulation of stress, anxiety, and trauma are rarely addressed. Such exposure can weaken the mental well-being of officers and affect their ability to perform their duties to the public and live healthy lives outside of work. The potential long-term effects of trauma in police officers may additionally lead to behavioral dysfunction such as substance abuse, aggression, and suicide.

Target Audience: Sworn law enforcement and retired law enforcement only.
