The Police Executive Research Forum, with support from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, has released a new report entitled Promising Strategies for Strengthening Police Department Wellness Programs: Findings and Recommendations from the Officer Safety and Wellness Technical Assistance Project.

This report, released this past October, shares the outcomes of the project, challenges faced, key recommendations for the building blocks of a comprehensive wellness program, tips on strengthening program development, guidance on support delivery, and strategies for increased participation.
