CURRENT CLIMATE: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN IOWA OFFICER

Featuring overviews by several Iowa officers, this 30-minute presentation will help attendees understand how daily activities, pressures and concerns vary by member agencies and departments.

PEER SUPPORT

What impact might an officer’s activities and experiences have on daily life, relationships and self-esteem? This 45-minute presentation will review some of the potential effects of a career in law enforcement , and will offer information on a local, Iowa-based charity that offers emotional, peer support to local officers.

IN THE LINE OF DUTY DEATHS

The loss of an agency member is tragic enough, but the loss of a member through a line of duty death brings the loss to an different level. Such instances are emotionally traumatizing, and require significant planning and coordination.

Iowa has experienced 200 Line of Duty Deaths, in communities both small and large across the state. Local agencies must understand the dynamics of such an loss, as well as the the need to assist neighboring entities who may suffer such a loss.

This 45-minute presentation will be offered by Dennis Reilly, Police Chief for the City of Grinnell, and Dennis McDaniel, Police Chief for the City of Johnston, who head the Iowa Police Chiefs Association (IPCA) Line of Duty Death (LODD) response team.
