Healthy Hire–Healthy Retire

July 25, 2017 - 30 minutes

In this episode of the VALOR Voices podcast, Captain Brian Nanavaty of the Indianapolis, Indiana, Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) discusses officer wellness and resilience. Captain Nanavaty played a key role in the development of IMPD’s Office of Professional Development and Police Wellness. In 2015, the IMPD won the Destination Zero award for Officer Wellness. Captain Nanavaty details why agencies need to be proactive and implement wellness programs for their officers. At the very core of the issue, a partnership needs to be created between every officer and his or her agency by providing the resources for officers to stay physically and mentally healthy and resilient, from the point of hire through retirement. Captain Nanavaty explains how this partnership will benefit the officer, the department, and the community.
