Sheriff Mehr acknowledges “Military veterans experience a unique set of circumstances when reintegrating into society post-deployment. They can suffer physical and psychological aftereffects from traumatic experiences that can culminate in injury to themselves, their families, and public safety/law enforcement personnel ”.
This course provides attendees with the knowledge, skills and abilities to defuse crisis situations. It also prepares law enforcement instructors to deliver the training in their own agencies, providing the necessary course materials and optional technical assistance.
