This mandatory training is for Ocean County municipalities only.
“The men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line every day in the name of protecting and serving the citizens of New Jersey. Law enforcement officers are often the first to respond to a scene and frequently witness the most traumatic events that happen in their communities. The emotional and mental toll on the officer’s wellbeing can build up over time, creating a stressful and unhealthy environment for the officer, causing health- and social-related issues, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, family and relationship stress, and, in some cases, self-harm. Thus, it is of the utmost importance that New Jersey’s law enforcement officers have the necessary tools to better cope with the unique stressors of their job. By providing officers with coping mechanisms to take care of their wellbeing, we are helping them be resilient.
Resiliency is the ability to overcome adversity, and the New Jersey Resiliency Program for Law Enforcement (NJRP-LE) is designed to do just that. Equally important to protecting a law enforcement officer’s physical safety, is protecting his or her mental health. It is time to create a positive culture for not only law enforcement officers, but for their families, friends, and the larger New Jersey community”.
General Resiliency training for all sworn officers throughout the county is a two day training. These trainings will be full days and it is expected that officers will be responsible for their own breakfast and lunches for those two days with the expectation that officers will remain in the classroom. Once a class hits 25 students, registration will be closed and you will have to register for an alternate date.
