Traumas of Law Enforcement
Organization(s): Concerns of Law Enforcement Survivors (C.O.P.S.)
Aug 26, 2019 — Aug 28, 2019
Each year, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) provides training to America's law enforcement agencies on how to appropriately respond to officers and their families affected by line-of-duty traumas through the "Traumas of Law Enforcement" trainings. At these trainings, instructors will present information that is important to America's law enforcement agencies regarding appropriate response to line-of-duty death, disability, critical incidents, and police suicide. At the conclusion of this training, the participants will have information about: 1) how an agency's response to tragedy directly affects the level of distress of their officers and surviving family members; 2) how an individual officer's pre-planning may directly affect the public safety officer benefit their family may receive in the event of their line-of-duty death; 3) how an officer can successfully navigate the cumulative stress caused by experiencing critical incidents throughout a law enforcement career and how their agency can assist with this; and 4) the warning signs and symptoms of Police Suicide.
