What is VALOR?

The U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) VALOR Officer Safety and Wellness Training and Technical Assistance Program (VALOR Program) delivers current, dynamic classroom and Web-based trainings to law enforcement that focus on recognizing indicators of dangerous situations, techniques for defusing difficult encounters, implementing casualty care and rescue tactics, emphasizing professional policing standards, and improving overall officer health and wellness. We also offer comprehensive resources and ready-made tools that are safety-related and topic-specific, designed to assist individual officers and agencies to create a culture of safety.

Our on-site and online education is delivered through a cadre of expert law enforcement practitioners. All training modules are developed using the latest expertise, analysis, tactics, techniques, and response methods to address a variety of officer safety topics.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  The VALOR Program is a component of the BJA Preventing Violence Against Law Enforcement Officers and Ensuring Officer Resilience and Survivability (VALOR) Initiative

The Bureau of Justice Assistance helps to make American communities safer by strengthening the nation's criminal justice system. Its grants, training and technical assistance, and policy development services provide state, local, and tribal governments with the cutting-edge tools and best practices that they need to reduce violent and drug-related crime, support law enforcement, and combat victimization.
