Dealing with an Officer in Crisis–
Millions of Americans suffer from mental health issues every year. Police officers and other first responders are not exempt from this reality. “A crisis can occur at any time and can include: receiving word of the death/unexpected death of a loved one, a line-of-duty death, peer suicide, a terminal diagnosis of one’s self or loved one, termination, indictment, investigation, arrest, etc.” Agencies prepare to deal with the citizen mental health emergency, but often fall short when addressing these issues within their ranks. Job cuts and dwindling budgets have left many agencies short-staffed. Officers will be exposed to greater rates of stress and trauma due to these shortfalls.
