While 2020 brought unprecedented change and uncertainty for law enforcement agencies, 2021 continued to offer challenges, especially in the areas of officer safety and law enforcement staffing.

Strong police leadership has never been more important to maintain officer morale, improve retention and prioritize safety. But how supported do officers and deputies feel by their first-line supervisors, chiefs and sheriffs? That is the focus of Police1’s second annual State of the Industry Survey. More than 2,300 LEOs responded from agencies large and small serving urban, suburban and rural areas.

During this webinar, sponsored by Utility, our panel discusses key findings of the survey, including:

  • The support police officers need to perform at their peak
  • Why not every cop should be a recruiter
  • Immediate steps law enforcement leaders can take to improve officer morale
  • The tools, training and services patrol officers say will improve their safety and wellness
