What is VALOR?

In 2010, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) VALOR Officer Safety Initiative was created in response to the startling increase in felonious assaults that have taken the lives of many law enforcement officers. VALOR provides all levels of law enforcement with tools to help prevent violence against law enforcement officers and to enhance officer safety, wellness, and resiliency.

VALOR is a comprehensive effort that includes classroom and Web-based training, research, and resources for sworn state, local, and tribal law enforcement officers. VALOR Training provides critical nationwide, no-cost officer safety training to all levels of law enforcement. Both on-site and online training modules are developed using the latest expertise, analysis, tactics, techniques, and response methods to address alarming trends. Since the inception of the initiative, more than 32,000 law enforcement personnel have received VALOR Training.
