CFCC Presents at International Law Enforcement Training Conference in Fort Worth, Texas
FORT WORTH, TX — Cape Fear Community College Law Enforcement Program Director Tim Fuss and Coordinator Mitch Cunningham recently traveled to Fort Worth, Texas to present at the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) Conference on May 16, 2022.
CFCC was selected to present among hundreds of proposals submitted for consideration. “This consideration speaks to the excellence of our law enforcement programs and illustrates the steadfast commitment of its faculty and staff who strive to deliver high-quality training and address public safety needs in our community and beyond,” said CFCC President Jim Morton.
The College’s presentation, “Building an Officer Mental Health Wellness Culture,” was presented to approximately 85 participants from across the nation and world.
The presentation’s training objectives included:
- Discussing factors that contribute to mental/emotional well-being
- Recognizing indicators that mental/emotional well-being may be affected
- Developing a strategy that will contribute to mental/emotional well-being
“Being able to present at the conference was a tremendous honor for CFCC and its law enforcement programs,” said Fuss. “Mental health within the public safety community is needed to bring awareness to an issue with alarming numbers. We train on response to calls, tactics, and searches but spend little time training in this area.”
IADLEST’s mission is to support the innovative development of professional standards in public safety through research, development, collaboration, and sharing of information, to assist states and international partners with establishing effective and defensible standards for the employment and training of public safety personnel.
