Hermiston Police Department to host Training Seminar

Release Date: 

"Winning the Battle"

Date: November 14, 2012, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM

Winning the Battle is like no other police training seminar.  Clarke, a 27 year veteran of law enforcement with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept., and his wife, Tracie, a 29 year Registered Nurse, share their story of how police stress not only changed their relationship, but their lives and the lives of their family members. Winning the Battle has been presented to tens of thousands of officers and hundreds of agencies and organizations to include VA Tech PD after the 32 student  massacre  and Lakewood  PD after their 4 officers were murdered  in a coffee shop. Winning the Battle is also presented  by Clarke & Tracie at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) Symposiums across the United States. In June, 2012, at the request of the U.S. Navy, Clarke & Tracie presented ‘Winning the Battle’ to Naval Special Warfare Unit #3 (SEALs) stationed in Bahrain. In this motivating presentation, Clarke and Tracie address  the Bi-Products  of police stress that when untreated, can and quite often do, result in suicide. Some of the topics addressed include: PTSD/Cumulative Stress (Cop Stew), Progression of Stress, Stress & Women in Law Enforcement, Officer Involved Domestic Violence, S.I.P.D.E., Spousal & Family Involvement, and Suicide/Suicide Prevention.

Winning the Battle is a motivating seminar designed to help officers and significant others recognize and understand the stressors associated with police work and how important it is to deal with those stressors early in their career. This is not the typical ‘get lost in 20 dollar word’ seminars.  Some  attendees  laugh  and some cry… They all leave with new found motivation, awareness of the importance of communication, and some basic, yet important knowledge of police stress and the resources available on how to deal with that stress.
