Career Survival for the Law Enforcement Officer
Law enforcement is a challenging vocation, and it is becoming more so every day. Officers face a constant threat to their physical safety and survival, but physical survival is only one of the things that can end a police career. Professional, emotional and personal survival can be equally important to an officer in completing his or her career on their terms. This dynamic eight-hour seminar examines the many ways that law enforcement careers end. The discussion includes the various internal and external stressors of the job, the effect of social and mainstream media on public perception of officers and how the changing public scrutiny adds to the already existing pressures of modern law enforcement. There is an examination of the ways that the existing police culture can feed into a hypervigilant mentality that can lead to the development of a singular identity that can be personally and professionally destructive.
Attendees will be presented with, and discuss, various methods and strategies to confront these challenges to emerge at the end of their career intact — physically, emotionally and personally.
Each time this seminar is offered, details such as dates, time, location, registration fees, continuing education units (CEUs) offered and relevant instructor information will be available on the registration form found in the calendar.
