“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. CopsAlive.com is operated by The Law Enforcement Survival Institute (LESI) where we 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.
CopsAlive is about Cops helping other Cops, stay alive!
When you read all of the statistics, it’s not about the bad guys killing us, it’s about other things like heart attacks, suicide, alcoholism and stress. Some of the other side effects of this career that help to ruin our quality of life are elevated rates of divorce, domestic violence and maybe even financial disaster. Law enforcement agencies around the globe spend millions of dollars each year to train their officers to survive armed or hand to hand combat, but most of them do not spend any money, or time, on telling officers what the real threats to their lives are and how to defend themselves from these threats.
CopsAlive.com was founded to provide information and strategies to help police officers successfully survive their careers. We help law enforcement officers and their agencies prepare for the risks that threaten their existence.
We do this by Helping Law Enforcement professionals plan for happy, healthy and successful lives on the job and beyond. We think the best strategy is for each officer to create a tactical plan for their own life and career.
It’s kind of like having a back-up on the job but this is about “Having a Backup Plan for Your Life”.
