Project Description

The Law Enforcement Resiliency and Peer Support for Law Enforcement Managers Course is designed to provide executive level managers a comprehensive overview of peer support and resiliency in law enforcement.

Law enforcement managers who are responsible for the development or oversight of peer support programs will benefit from this timely and relevant training.  Managers will understand the importance of peer support and resiliency programs and the impact on organizational wellness.

More importantly, those attending will learn to recognize the devastating effects of police stress as it relates to job performance, officer safety, organizational morale, and police suicide.

The stress of undercover operations, assignment to high-risk or specialized teams, exposure to critical incidents, and the effects of a depressed economy will be addressed.

Topics include:

Overview of Peer Support and Resiliency
Principles of Police Stress
Peer Support for the Family
Police Suicide
Human Resiliency and Law Enforcement
Critical Incident Support Debriefings
Peer Support Program Management


You must be a sworn member of law enforcement or corrections, a non-law enforcement member of an emergency services agency, or a mental health professional or a clergy member supporting emergency service activities to attend this course.  Requests for exceptions must be submitted and approved by the course director.

Note:  This course will not prepare students to provide qualified peer support as part of an organized peer support program.
