If you guys ever get the chance, get Dr. Lawrence N. Blum to come speak to your dept. He's a police psychologist and is a no-nonsense, down to Earth New Yorker, complete with accent and everything.
He gave a 3 hour lecture a few weeks ago on the psychology of high stress events and how officers can best survive them, and why they sometimes don't. The 3 hours flew by. Very interesting and he has many stories to help illustrate his point. He's also funny as hell!
He also has a book on Amazon that I am halfway thru, also very informative and thought provoking for anyone who might have to deal with life or death situations. It's called Force Under Pressure: How Cops Live and Why They Die. The guy absolutely loves law enforcement and it's obvious that he's dedicated to taking care of them.
Seriously, if you're on patrol, work in the jail, etc., pick up this book and/or go see him speak. Seriously. This is the type of stuff that can save your life and is routinely neglected in most law enforcement training (at least from my experience).
Incidently, he cites the higher survival rate of officers who have an intense workout regime as it conditions you to fight thru pain and discomfort. There are some GREAT workout resources on the Xyience Strength & Conditioning forum for those of you who have visted this one but not made it over there (there are so many damn forums on this site, I've lost count!!). One particularly good piece of advice I've gotten from there is the book called Infinite Intensity by Ross Enamait (www.rosstraining.com). Great book with very intense strength (as opposed to bodybuilding) workouts. Those workouts dovetail nicely into Blum's theories.
