The Law Enforcement Survival Institute and its sister website,, are working to support and conduct research into law enforcement wellness issues.

We are conducting a long range project called the “Total Policing Wellness Project” that is collecting tips, ideas and best practices from law enforcement officers and agencies from around the world.

When completed, this “best practices” document will be published free of charge for law enforcement officers around the world. You can learn more about this project here or at

The Law Enforcement Survival Institute is currently assisting a researcher with their project. This survey is quick and your help would be greatly appreciated!
