Five-day first-line supervisory course critical for both new and experienced public safety supervisors committed to leading from the front.

No public safety organization can function without well trained first-line leaders. The first-line supervisor is the most influential position within the organization. Their role, therefore, demands strong leadership, self-confidence, competence, management skills, and an understanding of how to influence their subordinates, the organization, and the community.

In 2012, the Indianapolis Metro PD developed a comprehensive approach to responding to officer-involved shootings (OIS) and other critical officer incidents, with a dual focus on investigation and maintaining officer health. This holistic response has resulted in officers receiving pre-incident inoculation, post incident health related resources, completing a mental health check-up, fulfilling their investigative responsibilities and internal review, and returning to full duty-healthy- usually within a two week period after the incident.

The IMPD officer involved shooting and critical incident response model is segmented into pre-critical incident preparation and post incident 24 hour response increments: 0-24 hours, 24-48 hours, 48-72 hours, 72-96 hours and beyond. The model focuses on stress and trauma inoculation before the critical incident and responding to the officer post incident with a methodology involving triage and support resources. This preparation and response results in the officer being better equipped to survive a critical incident, assist investigators post incident, while also being pro-actively engaged in long-term healthy practices.
