Officer Safety Is Important
It's the top concern for police executives.
Every agency head wants their officers to return home each day as healthy and safe as when they came on duty.
Police culture acknowledges the importance of physical safety and wellness.
Millions are spent each year to ensure an officer’s physical safety. This is also reinforced through official policy. Physical measures are mandated.
- Bulletproof vests
- Seat belts
- Defensive Tactics training
- Firearms training
- Pursuit and Defensive driving training
- De-Escalation training
Physical safety is something all departments emphasize and all officers support.
But It's Often Neglected
Especially emotional and psychological safety
Unfortunately, mental health and well-being, while equally critical, fail to receive the same level of attention and resources within the officer safety continuum.
Mental health issues and the threat of officer suicide are often topics no one wants to acknowledge.
In a profession that prides itself on bravery and heroism, mental health concerns can be seen as weaknesses and antithetical to the strong courageous police persona.
LEOs are not immune to stress, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or other mental health concerns or illness.
Arguably, they are more susceptible given the horrific events, trauma, and chronic stress endemic in their profession.

THIS TRAINING SAVES LIVES
"In my 32 plus years as a law enforcement officer, l have had the misfortune to witness first hand how suicide can affect everyone it touches- family, friends, and first responders alike. Suicide is one of the most preventable conditions on the planet, yet unfortunately, a law enforcement officer is statistically more likely to die by his own hands than those of a violent criminal.
The QPR course taught by Dr. Bart Leger gives all who attend the tools to do just that- prevent it. Who knows how many lives have already been saved by this invaluable program? No wellness program is complete unless it encompasses not only the health of the body but of the mind as well."
