Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center

Officer Preparedness

Courses & Events

The format of the course is broken up into two learning modules so participants not only gain knowledge and information, but also have the opportunity to practice the resilience tools they are taught in class over a two week time frame. During that time, participants will be exposed to various resilience skills in the categories of physical, mental/emotional, spiritual and social. The unique format will provide participants an opportunity to benefit from "peer support resilience coaching." Research has shown that if we want to make habits stick, one of the secrets to lasting change is found in the power of groups who hold us accountable. Participants will be required to do a small amount of homework and report back to the group each time we meet to discuss progress, obstacles and input from the group to promote successful habit change and improve resilience. You must take Part 1 and Part 2 to receive a certificate of attendance.

As first responders, police officers often have access to the most isolated individuals, including those who are older persons. Police officers are often an important gateway for older citizens to the community health and social services network. They are called upon to respond to various elder abuse situations, both at home and in senior living centers. First responders play a key role in investigating or preventing crimes against older citizens and dependent adults. However, the detection and assessment of this population is not systematic.
