Blue Courage is a transformational two-day leadership development workshop designed for all levels of the police organization to provide a holistic approach for the personal and professional development of today’s law enforcement officers. Blue Courage is designed to collectively build the spirit of community engagement by increasing officer engagement, dedication, productivity, collaboration and community trust.
Blue Courage is a force multiplier that encompasses nine teaching principles focused on the nobility of policing. Blue Courage builds emotional resiliency, hope and emphasizes the importance of health and wellness in the pursuit of positive community and relationship outcomes.
Blue Courage is a nationwide program endorsed by the U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement (IADLEST), the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, and the Carolinas Institute for Community Policing. Blue Courage addresses the many challenges officers’ face, such as cynicism, judgment, integrity, leadership and stress management. Understanding that each law enforcement officer is called upon to train and maintain their skill competencies, we must also understand and grow in the mindset and heart-set of today’s policing as to how and why we work to build public trust and relationships for those we serve.
