This Web page from the International Association of Chiefs of Police provides information for agencies to use in developing a policy aimed at reducing officer injuries. The information is the result of a multi-agency study conducted to identify and document the cause and magnitude of officer injuries, develop a set of resources to assist law enforcement agencies in responding to officer injuries, and to disseminate this information to the law enforcement community. This Web page links to the study's final report - Reducing Officer Injuries Final Report, the Executive Summary from the report, an Injury Tracking Tool for Agencies, an Injury Tracking Tool Training Presentation, Reducing Officer Injuries - Fitness and Weight Fact Sheet, and Reducing Officer Injuries - Importance of Tracking Injuries. Information is also provided on additional resources available to law enforcement agencies for dealing with the problem of officer injuries.
