With over 300 million people suffering worldwide, self-care needs to be a mission-critical goal. We continually witness police officers fall victim to suicide while their brothers and sisters in blue stand by helplessly. Stress is inevitable but misery doesn’t have to be the driving force in your life. This 8-hour course was developed to educate the attendee on self-care practices with the hope of creating a healthier lifestyle for the officer creating ripples in the law enforcement community to alleviate suffering and lessen the stressful effects of the profession. The goal in life should be to thrive not just to survive. Attendees will learn practical and applicable tools to make life more manageable.
The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 14-day prior notice to the event when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend should be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than 14-day notice will be subject to a ($40.00) cancellation fee. We will charge no shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been received. We offer one-year future course credit for any no show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of May 1, 2020, and you or as a representative of your agency agrees to the above policy by registering for this course. BSTS LLC sends email notifications of course cancellations or venue changes to the registered student email prior to the event, and will not be responsible for travel expenses related to these events. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which potentially removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, which is figured into our travel cost as well. The lack of communication by officers that don’t attend or register without department approval is the reason this policy exists.
