Police Morale: How to Build It and Maintain It [Webinar]Guest Speaker: MoreThanACop
Police morale starts with you! Poor employee morale is a serious problem facing law enforcement. If not confronted and corrected, low morale threatens the effectiveness of a police agency, and the emotional and physical well being of those who protect and serve. For most cops today, low morale has less to do with what they see and experience on the street than the impact of current politics, policies, and practices inside the department. In this webinar we will examine the impact of low morale, the foundations of improved morale, and 5 steps you can implement today to build and sustain morale.
