Traumas of Law Enforcement

 

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.

 

The training is presented over three days and includes 21-hours of class time.  The “Traumas of Law Enforcement” has been said to be “the best training I have taken in my entire law enforcement career” by many who have attended.

 

Some of the same issues that affect survivors come into play for officers with disabilities and those coping with trauma.  Recognizing the importance of helping agencies provide appropriate support for survivors and injured or traumatized officers, C.O.P.S. provides this training free of charge.  HOWEVER, PRE-REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY and participants are responsible for their own travel costs.

National Conference on Officer Wellness and Trauma

 

C.O.P.S. recognizes that every law enforcement officer is subjected to crisis and tragedy as a part of their job.  They see the most unthinkable acts of criminal behavior in our society.  But are we doing a good job helping officers navigate these events over a course of a twenty to thirty year career?

 

We continue to see officers suffering from PTSD in growing numbers.  Divorce rates continue to be higher for officers than the general public and tragically, too many officers choose to end their own lives each year.

 

This conference offers a much needed focus on officer wellness and the need to pro-actively address the cumulative stresses that can occur over an officer’s career.  This conference is for all law enforcement officers (active or retired) nationwide.  It is recommended for peer supporters, counselors, police chaplains and law enforcement spouses/significant others.  Law enforcement survivors are also welcome to attend.

 

Pre-registration is mandatory for all attendees.
