Course Objective

Why is this program important? In today’s society we hear and read a lot about law enforcement and community relations; some good things, some bad things, and some outright false hoods. In addition to this added pressure, the normal stresses and pressures of the job have led to breakdowns in communication and relations, resulting in an increasing onset of PTSD, substance abuse, suicide, and divorce.

Utilizing ways to improve accountability and communication will reduce PTSD, divorce, suicide and improve relations within our communities. This reduces citizen complaints, overuse of sick and personal time and will improve employee morale and productivity.

Course Content

This program covers ways to look at self-perceptions and perceptions of the community in an accountable way. This allows open, honest, communication, while removing judgements and improving relations within our communities.

Who Should Attend-

This course is designed for all law enforcement professionals from the Chief of Police/Sheriff to patrol officer/deputy.
