Leadership and Officer Safety

Common sense is the way to approach tiny threats to your staff


Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) begins with each officer having proper gloves (don’t skimp, get the better grade), personal and station house dispensers of alcohol gel. Consider getting slipover booties to prevent cross-contamination. The most important thing is for the first line supervisors and peers to remind all, safety for you and even your family begins with you. My medical advisors also recommend that you take the annual flu shot, get your Hepatitis immunizations and don’t forget the tetanus shot. If you are allergic to eggs, ask for the alternative ones. Equip, train and remind your officers that we are in this Petri dish environment, let’s stay safe for each other and our loved ones.
