This week, Aransas Pass officers and support staff attended training on Trauma Affected Veterans. Specifically, this training assists officers who respond to situations involving veterans in crisis. We hope this training will better equip new officers with understanding the similarities between law enforcement and military. Additionally, officers will better understand the types of trauma our veterans may suffer from.
Some of our training leadership was in attendance for this three day event. Additionally, our civilian crisis support staff member was also in attendance. Remember, many of those who serve tend to join law enforcement once they leave the military.
