Coping With Law Enforcement Stress is Coming to Mountain Home

The Baxter County Sheriff's Office will be hosting CJI's two-day training, Coping with Law Enforcement Stress, on September 4-5 in Mountain Home. 

This two-day class is designed to help officers recognize the danger of stress. Unmanaged stress can be very dangerous for the human mind and body. Policing, by nature, is stressful, and new challenges are presented daily.

The first day of class deals with typical stressors law enforcement officers face. The likelihood of chronic stress in an officer’s life and the negative effects it causes will be discussed. Several department studies dealing with officer suicide as a result of stress will be examined in class.

Officers will be encouraged to find an outlet in their lives to help them manage the unavoidable stress they will encounter. A licensed psychologist will be on hand for day two. At the conclusion of this course, officers will be able to identify one primary source of stress, identify three additional sources of stress, and recognize the importance of debriefing after stressful situations.
