What Is Safer Together?

The VALOR Program’s Safer Together Campaign emphasizes and strengthens the link between officer safety and wellness, community trust, and crime reduction. A new approach to officer safety and wellness, Safer Together offers trainings that provide practical strategies that officers can employduring most encounters to minimize the impact of stress and connect with their community members. Officers who adopt the skills that they learn from Safer Together trainings are not only helping themselves, but they are also helping to build trust and promote a healthier community climate, which means less stress and less danger for everyone.
