Pre-COVID saw Law Enforcement in a Mental Health crisis, with officers experiencing the mental health effects of stress well beyond the civilian population, and taking their own lives at twice the rate as the civilian community. This crisis continues.

All the events that have transpired during the last two years, which include not only the worldwide COVID pandemic but also protests and discussions of police defunding, all during a steep rise in crime have added a new crisis: officers leaving law enforcement in larger numbers than we have ever experienced.

Burnout has been identified as a key factor in this crisis. Burnout is an organizational issue, caused by long-term unmanaged stress, causing extreme emotional exhaustion, and cynicism, which leads to officers disengaging from their work, and ultimately leaving the force prematurely.

This webinar will outline the causes and symptoms of Burnout, and identify how as an organizational issue, it differs from Compassion Fatigue, which is often due to operational policing causes. Burnout is different from stress and compassion fatigue, and as such requires a different approach to deal with it. The talk aims to provide insights into solutions that individual officers as well as leaders, can help put in place to re-engage their officers, increase officer well-being and mental health, and motivation to stay in the force.
