Dear Police1 Member, 

Agencies struggling with retention frequently turn to new recruiting methods to address staffing issues. However, it’s necessary to realize that keeping your officers is more important than attracting applicants only to have them resign a few years into their careers.

Departments that promote a positive culture around mental wellness may find that the prevention and treatment of burnout, PTSD and other mental health struggles goes a long way toward both attracting and retaining officers. 

Police1’s latest digital edition, “Smash the Stigma,” sponsored by CentralSquare Technologies, outlines how agencies can build that positive culture and promote officer wellness.
