"Traumas of Law Enforcement" Trainings E-mail

C.O.P.S.

Since 1996, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) has provided this highly-acclaimed training to help agencies deal with officer death, injury, disability, police suicide, and the after-effects of losing a co-worker. Although law enforcement loses between 140-160 officers each year, some agencies have no protocol for how to make an appropriate death notification, how to deal with the surviving family, or how to carry out the sensitive, compassionate support that surviving families need to deal with the loss of a loved one to sudden, often violent death.

The "Traumas of Law Enforcement" training is a free, 3-day, 21-hour training that will help officers/agencies to develop general orders addressing traumatic issues affecting officers and sensitize them to emotional support needs of the fallen officers' families. Officers learn appropriate death notification, funeral protocol, the need for emotional debriefings following critical incidents, law enforcement suicide awareness, officer disability, issues faced by traumatized officers, the effects of officer deaths on the co-workers, appropriate methods for dealing with survivors after the funeral, and the importance of support for officers that continue on the job.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, US Department of Justice, has provided funding for these 2011 "Traumas of Law Enforcement" trainings.

Below are the dates and cities where the "Traumas of Law Enforcement" for 2011 will be held:
