Why Command Staff Needs to Prioritize Officer Safety and Wellness

Whether you are a Chief, a Superintendent, or whatever high-ranking title you may have, the bottom line is that your officers continue to do their jobs day in and day out. Despite the negativity on the street and from the media, these brave men and women continue to put on the uniform and serve their communities.


Beyond what is expected of you in your job description, what are you doing to ensure the health and wellness of all of your people? Is your department simply checking boxes or are you really delving into officer wellness? Ignoring your officers’ needs won’t make the need for health and wellness promotion go away.


As a leader, your people feed off your leadership and it trickles down from the top to the rank and file. Taking care of your people means more than simply having the right equipment and physical and tactical training.


In this presentation, we’ll discuss and break down the stigma that is endemic across departments. We’ll explore the need to create a culture of acceptance, promote wellness initiatives, focus on prevention and proactive measures rather than reactive ones, and embrace resiliency and recovery to stop the cycle of throwing good officers away. Finally, we’ll discuss how you can create and model the positive wellness behaviors that should be a cornerstone of every department.
