Are we beginning to turn a corner in law enforcement wellness? If we are, at least part of the credit should go to agencies that have begun wellness programs in their departments. The people who run those programs are called wellness officers or wellness coordinators.
My guest today, Wendy Hummel, is a retired police detective who came back to law enforcement to be the wellness coordinator at her local Sheriff's Office. We discuss what it takes to be a wellness officer and how to get started. Don't miss what Wendy says picking someone to be that program coordinator, the importance of a peer support program, and what police skills Wendy says helped her start a wellness program in a new agency.
