In a chaotic and unpredictable world of plummeting moral standards our nation’s police officers are facing stressors that can have predictable and profoundly negative impact upon their lives, careers and families. This seminar will assist those attending in gaining a distinctly different perspective on the unique and potentially problematic consequences of performing well within a law enforcement culture. Officers, Sergeants and those who assist them will reflect upon the traumas and triumphs associated with modern law enforcement and how these influence the pivotal balance between professional and personal relationships.

An experienced law enforcement executive and educator will guide law enforcement personnel in understanding a variety of best practice approaches in addressing these issues. A theme of personal leadership will run throughout this seminar as those attending will have ample chance to reflect upon the universal journey of a vocation spent in law enforcement. This seminar will provide a new set of skills designed to assist contemporary knights with maintaining a balanced, meaningful and rewarding lifestyle, while maintaining and protecting the nobility found in their servant’s spirit.

  • Removing classic frustrations encountered by police officers
