Policing is a family occupation. This 6 hour course is designed for individual police department officers and their families. Families are significantly affected in a variety of ways when a family member works in law enforcement. Conversely, family life plays a critical role in the officer’s much-needed support system. Despite this, few support services and little information are offered to families. As a result, many law enforcement families become isolated and overwhelmed: relationships flounder, individuals are damaged and the quality of service to the community is potentially compromised. This course is designed to provide insights, experiences and strategies that will assist law enforcement practitioners and their significant others — whether dating, married or partnered — in making good relationships even stronger.
