Navigating This World, Strengthening the Foundation at Home

On February 28, we held our very first event for officers and their spouses. Anjuli Thompson, a licensed professional counselor and police officer’s wife, did a fantastic job addressing the hazards of stress and burnout that many in the profession face.

A special ‘thank you’ goes to Adam Schniper, Stacey Eddy, Rev. Donny Acton and everyone at New Hope Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Without them, this event would not have been possible.

This event was a great opportunity and we are hopeful it has laid the foundation for future events that focus on the family.

Sun Tzu and “The Officer Resiliency Mindset” 

Returning in April is Jim Bontrager’s presentation on “The Officer Resiliency Mindset”. Jim spoke to us in September and the response was so great he is returning. This time the format will be a little different.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will host the April 26 and April 27 events. Then on April 29, Jim will speak in Dothan, AL, hosted by the Dothan Police Foundation. We are excited about the opportunity in Dothan! This will be our first time to travel outside the Birmingham area.

Jim has an outstanding message that every officer needs to hear. It will forever change your perspective on how to face the challenges of the profession. This is a free event providing you 7 hours of APSOT credit.
