Event Dates
In this webinar, presenters will share how RTI International experts in policing research, emerging technologies and health informatics, and occupational health and safety are addressing this major public health issue.

Specifically, presenters will discuss 1) the major mental and physical health risks faced by law enforcement personnel today; 2) best practices in the measurement and assessment of health and wellness indicators and outcomes, including the use of biometric and biomarker data; and 3) promising evidence-based strategies for improving officer health and wellness.

The presentation will include current insights from the field on officer health and wellness, results from a pilot study on the use of emerging technologies to capture biometric and biomarker data from officers in real time, and an overview of RTI�s current project, Developing and Validating Self-Guided Wellness and Stress Management Tools for Law Enforcement Agencies, funded by the Department of Justice Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office.
