Officer Safety and Wellness Group meeting summary : improving law enforcement resilience : lessons and recommendations



1 online resource (64 pages)


"Published 2017"


“In recognition of the cost emotional trauma can take on the mental and physical health of law enforcement officers, the OSW Group convened a meeting of law enforcement practitioners, men­tal health professionals, medical experts, and other stakeholders in October of 2016 to assist law enforcement agencies in identifying the best strategies and resources for helping law enforcement officers to build personal resilience. By resilience, I mean the ability not only to withstand the pro­foundly disturbing effects of responding to a mass casualty event but to thrive amidst the daily challenges and work-related stress that come with being a law enforcement officer. The following report, which covers the participants’ discussion, offers their insights and recommen­dations for promoting mental and physical health—the foundation of resilience. There is a great deal of practical information here, with advice that can benefit your entire staff and, as a result, improve relationships with your community. Officers who are mentally and physically healthy not only respond better to emergencies and other challenging situations but also relate better to the people they interact with, both on the street and in the precinct.”—Page 7.
