SLEEP…It is not optional!

Hello everyone, please take a moment and read what can happen if you’re not making sleep a priority.  Studies have shown that not getting enough SLEEP can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated! 


Think about that.  


Regardless of what you do or where you work on the department, SLEEP must be incorporated into your daily routine.  If you need assistance or strategies to help you get a good nights sleep, please call us at the Employee Wellness Section (EWS).                                 

Take care and stay safe,

Hey guys check this article out, it discusses several options on how to tactfully eat while on patrol!

“When you start feeling the effects of long hours spent on patrol without a solid meal, you face a real job hazard. Poor food choices — combined with stress, erratic sleeping habits, often unpredictable conditions and other factors unique to police work — can take a toll on officers’ health over time, in the form of depression and disease.”
