Stronger Relationships. Safer Officers.

Wellness and Peer Support is a priority for your department, county, or agency. 

You know that your personnel have a greater chance to be impacted by PTSD and to die by suicide than any other occupation. 

You see the burnout. 

Departments often miss a critical element of officer mental health and resilience: their relationships!

What keeps an officer safe on the job spills over negatively at home. Spouses and families receive the officer when they are exhausted, on the downside of hypervigilance. Training doesn’t just turn off when officer’s leave work and some of that behavior spills over into the officer’s relationships. Spouses and families do not understand why the officer is different or cannot engage which often leads to conflict and disconnection. 

Research backs that just like an officer’s work life spills over at home, home life spills over at work. This sets up a negative cycle for the officer, impacting their mental health and resilience.

Officers with a healthy and stable family life are less prone to distractions while on duty. Educating couples about the biological and neuropsychological aspects of policing enhances their relationships, making them more resilient and closely connected. Consequently, officers face fewer distractions, enabling them to concentrate better on their tasks and make safer decisions. This, in turn, impacts the officer and department relationship with the community. When they make those decisions, they come home!

Harness the resource that your law enforcement personnel need most, relationships!

About Cyndi Doyle: Therapist & Wife of a LEO

As a licensed therapist and LEO spouse, I THOUGHT I understood the unique struggles in a police marriage. There was so much more that I didn’t know! No one told us that the very training that kept him safe every day also would cause our disconnection. Because I don’t want you to struggle with the same learning curve, I created Code4Couples®, so you can have the education and tools to keep your relationship Code 4!
