To the Evansville Police Department Foundation
I just wanted to tell you thank you so very much for sending Emily and me to “The Traumas of Law Enforcement” conference. I have been an RN for many years, and this is one of the best conferences I have ever attended. Being a part of the Family Support Team on the police department has great significance for me since my husband was involved in a critical incident a few years ago. Being able to learn more to help other spouses, family members and friends of officers that have been involved with critical incidents will make a positive impact on the lives of many.
This conference taught us about the wonderful benefits of Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), support services available to surviving families, how to help with a traumatized officer, police suicide and post traumatic stress syndrome.
After talking with other officers and families at this conference, I know without a doubt that Evansville is on the cutting edge of what we do to help our officers and their families when a critical incident happens. I hope the department and our community realize how fortunate we are in the tri-state. Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity.
