(INDIANAPOLIS) - Training is underway this week in Indianapolis to help police officers and their family members cope with tragedy often tied to the job.
About 100 officers from 12 different states are participating in "Traumas of Law Enforcement." The three-day session, hosted by the Indiana Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, covers several topics about handling line-of-duty deaths.
Molly Winters is the Executive Director of the Indiana Chapter of C.O.P.S. She says training is especially relevant in the wake of the deaths of Trooper Gary Dudley and Chief Gary Martin, both C.O.P.S. members who were killed while cycling to raise money for the organization in 2006.
C.O.P.S was founded in 1984 and now serves over 15,000 families of fallen law enforcement officers.
