Armor - That which keeps you safe can destroy your humanity - Bobby Doyle
Exposure to many incidents and calls for service requires that armor be worn, both physically and mentally. The armor may be ballistic vests, ballistic shields, and personal protective equipment but, it may also include mindset, cynicism, and tough mindedness. This armor protects against physical injury/harm as well as emotional injury/harm. However, this armor can also become so impervious to emotion that persons lose sight of what it means to be human. True courage and compassion are just as essential as the armor in keeping you safe and functioning at a top level. THIS SESSION WILL BE MORE LISTENING THAN VISUAL!

The Power of Two Empowering Law Enforcement Couples to Combat Conditioning and Increase Resilience - Cyndi & Bobby Doyle
A 2019 research study showed that 40% of law enforcement officers surveyed reported a low level of compassion satisfaction, including satisfaction in helping others, appreciation, or value in their role. This, along with conditioning from the job can spillover, negatively impacting relationships with spouses and children, an officer’s key source of resilience. Left unaddressed, the cycle can increase the likelihood of mental health issues for officers and their family. In this session, learn key elements of conditioning that EVERY officer and spouse need to understand, the impact on compassion satisfaction, relationships and mental health, and research-based tools to empower officers and spouses to break the cycle and increase resilience.
