Grief & Loss in Law Enforcement: Helping Officers and Agencies Recover and Heal
June 1 — 3 P.M. EDT
Understanding the effects of grief, signs of complicated grief, and strategies that can be supportive after a loss is critical for officers to continue to be able to do their work effectively. Implementing policies and programs to help officers recognize and access appropriate supports to process the pain from grief and loss can help officers heal and agencies to continue to operate.
This webinar will present both agency and individual best practices that can help officers heal and grow from grief and loss. Officers, command staff, law enforcement employee assistance program personnel, officer safety and wellness staff, and mental health professionals all have a role to play in helping individuals and agencies struggling with these issues and are encouraged to attend.
