Description

This handbook is intended to be read by police chiefs and sheriffs throughout the country. Though this publication focuses on mass casualty incidents, traumatic events arise in everyday police work as well, and their effect cannot be overstated.

This unique publication offers expert advice and practical tips for helping officers to heal emotionally, managing public reaction, dealing with the media, building relationships with other first responder agencies, and much more. What makes this handbook especially helpful are the case studies and stories from the field contributed by chiefs, officers, and mental health professionals who have lived through a traumatic incident.
