  • Traumas of Law Enforcement  - Register here!  
    March 21-23, 2016 Dorchester, Massachusetts (Boston Area) December 7-9, 2015 Presented by C.O.P.S.
    Training Location: The Florian Hall, 55 Hall Street - Dorchester, Massachusetts 02124

    Each year, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) provides training to America’s law enforcement agencies on how to appropriately respond to officers and their families affected by line-of-duty traumas through the “Traumas of Law Enforcement” trainings.  At these trainings, instructors will present information that is important to America’s law enforcement agencies regarding appropriate response to line-of-duty death, disability, critical incidents, and police suicide.

    At the conclusion of this training, the participants will have information about:

1.  How an agency’s response to tragedy directly affects the level of distress of their officers and surviving family members.

2.  How an individual officer’s pre-planning may directly affect the public safety officer benefit their family may receive in the event of their line-of-duty death.

3.  How an officer can successfully navigate the cumulative stress caused by experiencing critical incidents throughout a law enforcement career and how their agency can assist with this.

4.  The warning signs and symptoms of Police Suicide.
