Re: International Conference of Police Chaplains
Dear Board Members,
On behalf of Pastor Tyrone Edwards and myself, please accept our heartfelt apology for the tardiness of this “Thank You” note AND our gratitude for your generous investment in our development as police chaplains.
The training that was provided at the recent International Conference of Police Chaplains in Indianapolis was excellent. We were treated very courteously and professionally by all the staff and presenters.
After receiving more information, we decided that we wanted to pursue the “Basic Training Level” of study and were able to complete 10 of the required 12 core-courses to achieve this level. These classes included the following:
- Stress Management
- Post Shooting Syndrome
- Burn-out (Officers and Chaplains)
- Responding to a Crisis Situation
- Law Enforcement Family
- Substance Abuse
- Officer Injury or Death
- Sensitivity and Diversity
The information we received, and the camaraderie we experienced, challenged us to be more determined to be excellent chaplains and more impactful members of the EPD team and family.
