Law Enforcement Services
Police Resiliency and Critical Incident Mindset Training
As one of three officers to breach the door and make entry into the suspect’s room during the 1-October Massacre in 2017 in Las Vegas (the largest mass shooting incident in US history to date), Josh knows the feelings police officers are taught to feel, and the feelings he actually felt during that incident.
Fear, anxiety, and uncertainty are REAL, yet seldom talked about in the law enforcement and first responder community. If we are not honest with our first responders about the reality of what their emotions will be IN the moment, they will struggle to manage those emotions not only in the moment, but the years after. Josh is passionate about his goal of “Preparing your workforce FOR the moment, IN the moment!”
Because of this experience, as well as many others over the course of his career, Josh provides training for law enforcement and first responders that addresses:
The intense emotions you’ll experience before, during, and after responding to a critical incident.
Coping strategies (backed by data science) first responders can employ in the moment of a critical incident.
Coping strategies post-incident.
Ways law enforcement and first responder agencies can improve the wellness of their workforce post incident, and how agencies can minimize the impact of internal stressors on the workforce.
Tabletop exercises are a valuable tool to prepare your department for critical incident response. A tabletop built specifically for your organization’s unique environment and challenges by Josh, a law enforcement professional with over two decades of experience, will equip your workforce with the necessary tools to respond effectively and confidently to a critical incident. Josh has led tabletop exercises for law enforcement, retail companies, major resorts, and other public and private businesses.
Bitsko Consulting will work with you to help build a realistic tabletop exercise, and then administer it in a dynamic and informative manner. We will then provide you with feedback and areas for improvement for your organization.
