Why a Trauma Informed Culture at your Law Enforcement Agency Will Make Your Cops Better and the Community Happier

Wichita State University Police Department

Come learn why the trauma informed response is not just for domestic and sexual assault survivors. Of course, that is why it was
originally designed, but after several years of implementation, we have learned it just makes our officers better overall. This
presentation will show concrete examples of how the trauma informed response helps us conduct better interviews and
interrogations. It makes our patrol officers better during interactions with highly stressed subjects. Finally, the way we treat
all victims, witnesses, and even suspects impacts the way our community sees us. The principles taught via the trauma informed
response helps in all these areas and more.
