C.O.P.S. Training – Traumas of Law Enforcement

Overview

Each year, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) provides training to America’s law enforcement agencies on how to appropriately respond to officers and their families affected by line-of-duty traumas through the “Traumas of Law Enforcement” trainings.  At these trainings, instructors will present information that is important to America’s law enforcement agencies regarding appropriate response to line-of-duty death, disability, critical incidents, and police suicide.

The training is presented over three days and includes 21-hours of class time.  The “Traumas of Law Enforcement” has been said to be “the best training I have taken in my entire law enforcement career” by many who have attended.

At the conclusion of this training, the participants will have information about:

1.  How an agency’s response to tragedy directly affects the level of distress of their officers and surviving family members.

2.  How an individual officer’s pre-planning may directly affect the public safety officer benefit their family may receive in the event of their line-of-duty death.

3.  How an officer can successfully navigate the cumulative stress caused by experiencing critical incidents throughout a law enforcement career and how their agency can assist with this.

4.  The warning signs and symptoms of Police Suicide.

All of the participants in this training will be provided information about the available federal public safety officer benefits and their individual state benefits.

Some of the same issues that affect survivors come into play for officers with disabilities and those coping with trauma.  Recognizing the importance of helping agencies provide appropriate support for survivors and injured or traumatized officers, C.O.P.S. provides this training free of charge.  HOWEVER, PRE-REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY and participants are responsible for their own travel costs.

Who Should Attend?

Law Enforcement Administrators, Officers and Deputies, Peer Support Team Members, Employee Assistance Personnel, Planning and Research, Chaplains, Survivors, and Law Enforcement Spouses.
