Armor Your Agency™ Training Program
The “Armor Your Agency™: How to Create a Healthy and Supportive Law Enforcement Agency” program offered by The Law Enforcement Survival Institute and CopsAlive.com is designed to build a comprehensive law enforcement agency wellness system.
This training program is a powerful seminar that will help you begin building the foundations for health and wellness support systems within your law enforcement agency. You will find the tools you need to recognize the symptoms of the toxic effects of a career in law enforcement, and be able to create a system for the support of the personnel within your entire organization.
Our “Armor Your Agency” program includes all the critical strategies that you will need to build a system of support and encouragement for a healthy and productive agency.
Critical Strategies discussed in the “Armor Your Agency” program include:
- Mentoring programs
- Peer support
- Chaplain’s program
- Family support network
- Psychological services
- Resilience training and education
- Critical incident support system
- Agency orientation for new employees and family members
- Survivor support
- Medical and wellness services and education
In this program you will learn about:
- The importance of peer, family, survivor and Chaplain’s support
- The blending of psychological and medical services
- The development of emotional combat survival techniques
- The necessity of mentoring programs
- Nine critical protective factors
- Seven core concepts for stress reduction
- The concept of “True Blue Valor™ ” (the courage to help an officer in crisis)
You will learn to conduct an “Agency Threat Assessment” and then to benchmark your organization’s programs using different models for wellness. You can begin to build your own strategic wellness plan and use the CopsAlive.com Agency Wellness Planning Checklist to steer your organization toward a positive culture of health, wellness and success.
We have included training modules so you can create a system of “Fire Spotters and Smoke Jumpers” to recognize trouble and then establish an “Agency Support System” to provide the needed resources.
There is even a “Suggested Library List” so you can further enhance your agency’s tactical wellness and survival skills library as a resource for your employees.
