Priority for Police: Officer Health and Wellness with Sherri Martin
Episode #38 | 18 January 2023
Working in law enforcement, where officers show up and suit up every day to serve their communities, can be a stressful job. Some studies show that the average officer experiences more traumatic events in 6 months than the average person does in a lifetime. Fortunately, over the past few years, the profession has made great strides in emphasizing the importance of officer wellness and mental health.
On this episode of the Blue View, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down with Sherri Martin, National Director of Wellness Services here at the FOP. Our Division of Wellness Services provides a variety of resources to FOP members, including education, connections to culturally competent wellness practitioners, and guidance in all matters related to staying healthy and productive.
