The COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services) Office recently announced the release of a publication suite focused on creating an organizational culture of wellness for officers and their support networks.

Law enforcement officers regularly experience stress and secondary trauma during their shifts and rely on their families and friends as a positive social support network to maintain holistic wellness. Family Matters: Executive Guide for Developing Family-Friendly Policies, Procedures, and Culture and its companion tools for families and agencies guide professional dialogue around holistic wellness innovations, best practices to support employees and their families, and opportunities within agencies to strengthen relationships with law enforcement families.
