Upcoming Webinars


Ridesharing as a Road Safety Tool [SPONSORED BY LYFT]

How Lyft and law enforcement can partner to accelerate the safety benefits of app-based ridesharing.

Peer Support: Developing and Keeping a Program Strong

March 8 @ 2:00pm Eastern

Peer Support provides a way for employees and their family members to confidentially talk about personal and professional problems with specially trained co-workers who understand and want to help. This webinar is designed to raise awareness and emphasize the importance of peer support programs for first responder agencies. The peer support selection process will be covered and the benefits of starting a program will be identified. In addition, participants will learn what is involved in being a peer supporter, as well as recognize the importance of maintaining their peer support team.

Presenter: Nancy Bohl-Penrod, Ph.D., Director, The Counseling Team International


Protecting Your Jail – Part I: Avoiding Costly Lawsuits and Saving Money by Advancing Your Suicide Prevention Program [SPONSORED BY FALCON, INC.]

March 15 @ 2:00pm Eastern

It’s a new year, and given the focus in 2017 on inmate litigation, especially with the mentally-ill population, it is vitally important for Sheriffs and Jail Administrators to critically examine their suicide prevention programs. This webinar examines suicide prevention programs with the goal of assisting counties to not only meet minimum standards, but to truly understand and identify system areas that can be advanced or elevated. The webinar guides the audience in how to ensure that their system is reliable, that it really works, and that the effectiveness is sustainable. Creating a suicide prevention system that truly works and continues to be reliable year after year, will not only provide peace of mind that cost savings from lawsuits are achieved, but will also garner the county political capital by demonstrating safety and treatment effectiveness with their high-risk populations.

Presenters: Dr. Elizabeth Falcon, Psy.D., CCHP-MH, MBA and Dr. David Stephens, Psy.D.
