The Billings Police Department hosted the Montana LEO Peer Support Network for its Getting Through the Grind course.
Officers from state, local, and federal agencies were in attendance as Detective Lange and Sgt. Stovall instructed on the physiological and emotional effects of trauma and stress on law enforcement.
We heard some incredible testimonies of a couple of fellow officers who are survivors of PTSD as well.
BPD recognizes the importance of mental health in our officers and is proactive in our approach to support them.
