Welcome to CopsAlive.com. CopsAlive works in cooperation with The Law Enforcement Survival Institute to bring useful tools, ideas and strategies to police professionals who want to plan happy, healthy and successful lives and careers.
What will you do with your life? Will you become one of the best cops in the world or will the job take it’s toll on you? CopsAlive will ask questions of you and of the experts on your behalf. We will consider the true threats to your life and ask you to conduct threat assessments for your life, health and career.
Law enforcement is the most noble profession in the world. Police officers deserve the very best the world has to offer as thanks for their valuable service to the world. Lots of money, time and resources are spent to help cops protect themselves on the job. Most of it is focused upon “officer survival” strategies that protect officers, deputies, constables, and correctional officers from armed assaults. A true threat assessment of a career in law enforcement reveals that there are many other threats and some of them are more serious. This site is dedicated to finding anything that will help cops successfully navigate their careers and survive in mind, body and spirit to enjoy the rest of their lives in peace no matter when the end of their career arrives.
I had a friend and fellow retired officer commit suicide last year. I didn’t realize how bad the police suicide stats were until I started doing some research. cops have very high suicide rates and lots of other health challenges. I think we would all acknowledge that we as a group have a high rate of alcoholism and divorce and maybe even financial crisis. What will you do with your life?
