Dr. Jack EnterChallenging the Law Enforcement Organization: Proactive Leadership Strategies
The vast majority of law enforcement managers fail to consistently practice recognized leadership skills. Their failure to deal with problems, make decisions, and look after their personnel have created an atmosphere of distrust by staff of their supervisors and managers. As a result, the number one stressor in American law enforcement is not the operational danger most personnel encounter on a daily basis – but the men and women in their agencies who make emotionally based decisions – not principle based decisions.Most law enforcement personnel have learned to do their jobs in spite of - not because of their supervisors and managers. For personnel – they do their job because of the love of the mission.The principles discussed in the program apply to all levels of supervision and management – both sworn and civilian. Individuals who are not yet supervisors can also benefit from attending.
Captain Brian NanavatyOfficer and Agency Wellness—Hiring and Retiring Healthy®
According to American Police Beat “somewhere between 2-6 times more officers kill themselves each year than are killed by the bad guys.” Thousands of officers are currently in crisis—experiencing trauma, family and financial distress, behavioral health challenges, substance abuse and other health issues. Employee wellness programs shouldn’t wait for crisis to occur, but should begin during the hiring process and continue through retirement. Both preventative programs and crisis intervention should be utilized to influence the professional and personal lives of employees and their families. When organizations identify healthy applicants and partner with health professionals to maintain employee health, these organizations have the potential to improve morale and productivity while reducing complaints and liability.Officer and Agency Wellness—Hiring and Retiring Healthy® will introduce attendees to the innovative Indianapolis employee wellness program that US Attorney General Loretta Lynch has called “the model for law enforcement wellness.” Ground-breaking research and proven strategies to address officer distress from the Indianapolis Model© will be introduced in this course. These strategies are intended to aid agencies in reversing the trends of organizational paralysis that result in a failure to intervene as employees face personal and career crisis. Upon completion of this course, participants will have gained insight into strategies for designing an agency infrastructure that supports and maintains healthier employees.Understand the importance of education and early intervention before officers are in crisis.Address the myth of “retraining” as a cure-all for employee issues.Identify health and resiliency traits during the recruiting and probationary process while there is still time to address long- term risk.Understand how promoting employee wellness reduces distress (both on and off-duty) which results in reduced liability for the organization.Identify, recognize and assess indicators of crisis and how to use the Indianapolis Model© to effectively intervene.Utilize separation agreements and other non-adversarial methods when intervention strategies prove unsuccessful.Understand how implementing organizational strategies for developing and maintaining healthy employees benefits the officer, the organization, the union, the community and the officer’s family.
