Officer Safety and Wellness in Rapidly Changing Times: What does it look like for officers, their families and agencies?

Event Dates

The last few years have presented unforeseen challenges to communities, public safety officers, and first responders.

Public safety leaders, supervisors, and agencies must prioritize, safeguard, and recognize the importance of ensuring the physical and mental wellbeing of their employees and their families and be able to adapt quickly to evolving risks and needs. Maintaining officers’ overall health in this era requires innovation, collaboration, and continuous learning.

This webinar will highlight the impact of stress and trauma on police officer’s physical and mental health, discuss recent officer injuries and fatalities, and identify collaborative partnerships and available resources that can be instrumental in creating a holistic officer wellness program that will improve the lives of officers and their families.
