Location: The Church of Eleven22
Directions: 651 Commerce Center Drive, Unit 100, Jacksonville, FL 32225

Presented by Special Agent (Retired) Karin Houston

The single most lethal aspect of police work is suicide. The suicide rate for police officers is two to three times the rate of the general population, and nearly three times as many officers kill themselves as are killed by criminals in the line of duty.

Many cases of suicide reflect the cumulative impact of several stressors, often involving a combination of relationship and work-related problems Though no one in law enforcement wants the experience of dealing with a fellow police officer in an active suicidal crisis, personnel of all ranks need to prepare for how to handle, supervise, or delegate this type of situation. Incidents requiring a police response often are complex, emotional, and dangerous.

You will learn about factors contributing to a suicidal crisis, the unique dynamics of a law enforcement response, the decision to request mutual aid and specific techniques for communicating with an actively suicidal officer.

Following a presentation in the morning, students will participate in s full-length scenario involving a fellow officer in crisis.

This course is FREE for students who were unable to participate in the First Coast Challenge on November 9-10, 2022 due to Hurricane Nicole for either or both days.

All other attendees will pay a $60.00 registration fee.

Absolutely no walk-ins please.
