This course will help the law enforcement officer understand how police officers have survived being shot in the line of duty; the aftermath of the critical incident; and the physical, emotional and psychological effects on the officer. An overview of a U.S Department of Justice Report will be presented about officer ambush survivability, the environmental and incident dynamics, and the aftermath of surprise attacks against law enforcement officers. Response to an officer down call, law enforcement traumatic stress, mental health wellness strategies and wounded officer peer support groups will be discussed. This training includes a police documentary series that features wounded police officers describing what it feels like to be shot in the line of duty, the aftermath of their critical incidents, and post-incident lessons learned. A discussion with a wounded officer is included in the presentation.
