The Early Career is an essential stage to focus on equipping officers with the tools to maintain their mental and physical wellness throughout their career. This life cycle stage begins after recruitment and lasts through the early years of a law enforcement career. It serves as the foundation for a successful officer. During the Early Career stage, important safe and healthy lifestyle habits are formed, ingrained, and later built upon.
