Mental Health and Wellness

This online training module is designed to provide an overview of the different levels of on-the-job stressors that law enforcement officers face in the commission of their jobs. Officers have to worry not only about the physical dangers but also the emotional stressors, which can affect officer safety. Operating under stress can lead to fatigue, burnout, depression, physical and emotional ailments, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and lack of sleep, all of which can impact an officer’s thought processes, reaction time, perception, and judgment. The module outlines the characteristics of stress and gives techniques to managing it and creating a work-life balance.
