R4 Blue Line Support Seminar- Idaho Falls FREE

SupervisionCourse Number: R4236

Course Description:

We have an amazing group of speakers with over 385 years of law enforcement experience (including four Medal of Valor recipients). Five of them have been shot in the line of duty.

We address the topics that are relevant to the world of law enforcement, with the sole purpose of encouraging the officer. The end result we hope for is the well-being of the officers, with the result that they can be the servant and protector the community needs.

SUICIDE PREVENTION

It is no secret that many active and retired officers have taken their life in the last few years. In 2019, over 230 officers (active and retired) did so. In 2020, that number is slightly above 150. Several officers on our team have contemplated suicide – and found a way out. You can go to our video section and listen to their testimony.

PTSD

PTSD has affected soldiers on the battlefield as well as the cops on the street. Several of our speakers have experienced this traumatic condition – but found a way out. Put simply, it is next to impossible to have a lengthy career as a police officer and not be affected by various scenes the officer witnesses. Five of our team members have been shot. Each recovered.

FAMILY LIFE

No one is sure just how many officers go through divorce. But we are sure of this: married life can be very stressful! Our team knows a thing or two about marriage. Combined, they have been married over 300 years. Some of our team members have also experienced the pain of divorce. Truth be told, married life has as much stress as police work (if not more!).

RESILIENCE

Resilience: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties: mental toughness. These are absolute “musts” if one is to survive a police career. Some of our team members are “specialists” in this subject, and have shared their expertise with officers around the country in various training settings.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We are convinced that involvement in the community in which the officer serves is an absolute must. That is not to say that we think the officer should live in his community. But it does mean that whatever community (“district”) the officer is assigned to is somewhere that he/she needs to serve wholeheartedly. Tyrone Dennis, former Atlanta Police Officer, did just that. Tyrone shares his story (and a few others do likewise). The goal is obvious: create good relations between police and community.

STRESS

This is a no-brainer! Lots of cops (and the rest of the word) are quite stressed these days. Some of those stressors can be removed: while others cannot – and must be confronted. We are convinced that the secret to dealing with stress is to become the kind of person that can withstand stress – and not be destroyed by it. There are stressors in life that will NEVER go away: but they need not destroy us.

VERBAL DE-ESCALATION

One of the greatest needs amongst law enforcement is improving their skills of verbal de-escalation. This is the one skill that an officer will use more than any other. Learning to stay calm, and helping others do likewise, is a priceless treasure. We want to share techniques that will help the officer do just that. One of our presenters (a Medal of Valor recipient) spent 32 years in the traffic division. He learned a thing or two about verbal de-escalation.
