Virtual Event: Trauma-Informed Policing: Improving Mental Health and Public Safety

 

Join our Training Content Specialist, Jeff Carek, and other panelists for a conversation on Trauma-Informed Policing: Improving Mental Health and Public Safety. This virtual event is hosted by Ford School of Public Policy-University of Michigan on November 15.

Police deal with trauma on a daily basis, which is not systematically addressed. That can lead to police officers being stressed and disillusioned, and affect their decision-making. That is bad for the police and for the communities they serve. Changing policy to help police departments deal with routine trauma can improve the conditions for the police and for policing in general. This discussion will look at the current state of affairs and possible solutions.
