Every police officer is presently in 1 of the 4 Categories of Life...


Emotionally burned out, feeling overwhelmed, very susceptible to stress and negative pressures, making unsafe choices, potentially harmful to self.


Striving for more stability in life, work, and relationships but having little success, hard to get things done, trying to move forward but struggling.

After being safe...

what do families, spouses, children, and parents want for their officers?

They want them to be happy, hopeful, optimistic, and as much as is possible to live a normal life in spite of a such a difficult, demanding, and often negative job.
Another name for this is emotional health…they simply want their officer to be emotionally healthy.

Why is it so important?

Emotional health has the power to save or destroy lives and families. Therefore, it must be a priority for every leader in law enforcement. Especially now during these unfair, hostile, and destructive times.

Lives will be lost and families ruined if greater concern and action is not taken at the leadership level.
