For the Veteran Officers: Leadership, Ethics, and Wellness Training

For years, the law enforcement community has wrestled with the personal and professional changes that occur in many police officers during their career. The work experiences of police officers result in a changing perception of law enforcement’s role. Recognizing that this role perception will change, agencies can prepare to make a positive influence on the veteran officers. The police departments participating in the Suburban Law Enforcement Academy undertook this task and developed a model that may be helpful to other agencies and academies.
