“Saving the Lives of the People Who Save Lives”
Our mission of “Saving the Lives of the People Who Save Lives” extends from our “Armor Your Self™” training seminar to the Information, strategies and tools available on our website to help cops plan for happy, healthy and successful careers, relationships and lives.
The Armor Your Self™ on-site training program is an eight hour hands on “How to” seminar that helps police officers and other law enforcement professionals armor themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We also teach how to Armor Your Agency™ against the stresses and traumas inherent in careers in law enforcement.
Many people who serve, and who have served, in law enforcement bear the scars of the cumulative stresses that accompany the career. The Law Enforcement Survival Institute (LESI) and CopsAlive.com work tirelessly to assemble strategies, tactics and best practices to help anyone working in this profession successfully survive their career. LESI and CopsAlive.com work with agencies and families to create environments that support healthy, happy and effective law enforcement professionals both on the job and at home.

“Flash Recognition Training For Law Enforcement Officers”
Flash Recognition Training is a process used to enhance your memory and powers of observation. In the video you orient you to an exercise called “Kim’s Game” and then use faster flash recognition techniques to help you improve your observation and memorization of details about license plates, peoples faces and street scenes. This is just one way to strengthen your skills and use them to survive your career in law enforcement. You might want to expand this video to full screen mode and have a pen and paper handy to make notes. Good luck!

The Law Enforcement Survival Institute (LESI) works with individuals and organizations to help them create and sustain success in their lives and careers as law enforcement professionals.
No one argues that law enforcement is a very stressful career. What is in question however is what are the true risk factors working against a law officer? Is it really the bad guys who are killing most cops? According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund on average 163 officers lose their lives in the line of duty in the United States each year. Of that number approx. 73 are murdered and another 90 die accidental deaths (mostly in motor vehicle accidents). The National Police Suicide Foundation reports however, that the numbers of deaths due to suicide are 2 to 3 times the number of line of duty deaths among law enforcement agencies and emergency workers That means that as many as seven times as many officers took their own lives than those who were killed by the bad guys. Research and anecdotal evidence suggests that cops have a higher incidence of almost all forms of cancer than most Americans, and may have a higher incidence of alcoholism, divorce and perhaps financial ruin or bankruptcy. Further anecdotal evidence suggest that this in an international phenomenon with universal implications.
At The Law Enforcement Survival Institute we train law enforcement officers to cope with stress and manage all the toxic effects and hidden dangers of a career in law enforcement.

The concept of “True Blue Valor™” is where one law enforcement officer has to muster the courage to confront a peer who is slipping both professionally and personally and endangering themselves, their peers and the public. It takes a system of organizational support and professional leadership to support and foster the concept of courage and intervention. We will train your trainers to deliver this program to your agency.
