R4 Suicide is not an option- Idaho Falls

Course Number: R4236

Course Description:

America’s law enforcement officers are significantly more likely to die by suicide than being murdered in the line of duty. For years mental health professionals have come alongside officers with treatment, assistance, and counsel. Yet, the suicide rate continues to increase. Can this ever-increasing suicide rate among these warriors be stopped?

In this four-hour seminar, Law Enforcement Chaplain Tim Rupp approaches suicide from a spiritual health perspective. Rupp argues there is meaning to life beyond the individual. Humans are not only physical and mental beings, but spiritual beings who yearn for a yet to be experienced life beyond. This eternal hope instilled in every person gives meaning to life and a reason to hope. Hope for more, hope for new, hope for better. Rupp believes that this intrinsic hope is a key to reduce the suicide rate among our warriors.

Every student will receive a copy of Suicide is not an Option book by Tim Rupp.

R4 Winning a Gunfight- Idaho Falls

Course Number: R4139

Course Description:

Does physically surviving a gunfight mean you won? Not by a long shot. Many people survive gunfights. In fact, most people who are in a gunfight survive. But there is a difference between surviving and winning. Surviving means you continue to exist. Continuing to exist and winning are not the same.

Everyone who carries a gun for personal protection or the protection of others needs to understand what they will face before, during, and after a gunfight. This eight-hour seminar is based on Winning a Gunfight helps prepare the modern warrior to win in the event they face a deadly foe.

Every student receives a copy of Winning a Gunfight, foreword by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman.
