NEW TOOLKIT Reducing Officer Injuries


NEW TOOLKIT Reducing Officer Injuries

Taking the initiative to better track officer injuries is an important step for law enforcement agencies. Doing so reveals how injury risks can be mitigated and/or prevented. It also allows for a greater understanding of the

range of injuries sustained by officers in the line-of-duty and the resulting financial concerns for a department.

On Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at the IACP Annual Conference in Philadelphia, IACP will be releasing the Reducing Officer Injuries toolkit for law enforcement and a summary of project findings in conjunction with a

plenary session titled Pushing the Boundaries of Officer Safety and Wellness (1:00-3:00 pm, room 114). Project resources will also be made available for download on the IACP website that same day.

If you are unable to attend the conference and wish to receive a copy of the toolkit, email Ian Hamilton with the IACP Center for Officer Safety and Wellness – hamilton@theiacp.org
