Phoenix PD Employee Assistance Unit
Employee Assistance Unit: Discussion on employee wellness and how to build an employee wellness detail. The presentation will include response to a critically injured employee/line of duty death, examples of employee wellness issues, and partnerships/relationships that will help when an employee is in crisis. The focus is not only getting officers through their policing careers, but to have a path, so they can enjoy a long and happy life post-retirement also.
