This four-hour presentation focuses on the psychological survival for law enforcement officers. It is important for agencies to recognize the fact that the extreme stressors their officers and first responders face on a daily basis eventually take a toll. Every law enforcement officer, first responder, trainer, supervisor, and executive needs to know about the signs of suicide and what steps can be taken to prevent it. The stigma of asking for helping must be stripped away and the need for open and frank discussion should be encouraged.
