Police Officer Toolkit: PTSD and Military Veterans

The purpose of this toolkit is to assist police officers, or those who train police officers, to more effectively interact with Veterans who have posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD.

Using the techniques described in this toolkit may increase the likelihood that you can help Veterans with PTSD gain control of their behavior and be less reactive when triggers happen. Your knowledge of PTSD, as well as military culture and training, could also help you make a connection with Veterans who have PTSD. You may become a positive role model, or potentially connect Veterans with PTSD to beneficial resources.
