What Can I Do To Best Prepare For Civilian Life?

The transition from being a police officer to a civilian can be daunting and can greatly impact on some individuals. Research indicates that the impact of this change can be minimised by preparing for the change ahead of time and understanding the impact of the change as it occurs. As such, NSW Police Force and EML have partnered with Phoenix Australia – Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health to develop an online program to help officers, family, friends and treatment providers make the transition easier.
