Suicide prevention starts with you, the law enforcement executive. Attend this forum of law enforcement leaders to dive deeper into policy and strategic planning surrounding suicide prevention and response. Through guided instruction and facilitated discussions, you will learn about the underlying causes of suicide, explore a variety of solutions both for you and your agency, and consider ways for your organization to overcome barriers to help-seeking encountered by your officers
Be the agents of change! As a law enforcement supervisor, you are critical in the fight against law enforcement suicide. Your role is three-fold. First, you set the example through demonstrating healthy coping behaviors and using available resources. Second, you must stay engaged with your officers to encourage healthy behaviors and to detect any potential issues before they become problematic. Finally, you serve as a crucial link between your officers and your agency’s suicide prevention-related messaging and resources. In this training, you will engage with other law enforcement supervisors to discuss these issues and share your ideas to help combat suicide.
Did you know that law enforcement officers are at greater risk for suicide than the general population, due to the unique stresses of their jobs? Although all law enforcement officers are exposed to this stress, much can be done to mitigate its effects. During this training, you will gain a deeper understanding of factors that contribute to suicide, learn to recognize warning signs in yourself and others, focus on ways to build resilience, and explore options for treating any unresolved stress.
Be a champion on the front lines of the fight against suicide! The Train-the-Trainer Workshop offers an in-depth exploration of suicide risk factors and the latest techniques and resources for combating these risks. Through group discussions and hands-on learning, you will be equipped to help train and educate your own agency to combat suicide. You will also become more knowledgeable of available resources and programs and their implementation at your agency.
