A strong and healthy home environment is the foundation of a high performing law enforcement officer. Just as the physical body needs good food and regular exercise to operate at peak performance, a relationship also needs to be fed and strengthened.

The Police and Family Workshop is an arena where family members can engage with each other in a new way, discovering deeper levels of understanding and revisiting values that keep the family together.

Participants will take away tools to improve connection and increase intimacy. Both LEOs and their loved ones will find their voices through the interactive exercises in a safe environment. Join us for this worthwhile investment of your time.
