Virginia Division hosts another successful PBF Behind the Badge Suicide Prevention Seminar

On July 16 2013 the Virginia Division hosted another successful PBF Behind the Badge Suicide Prevention Seminar.  Guest speakers Tim Rutledge and Jim Sewell,once again, did an outstanding job presenting this vital information to law enforcement professionals from the Central and Northern Virginia Area.
Glen Hoyer, Director of the Law Enforcement Division of the National Rifle Association, made it possible for us to hold our seminar in their beautiful auditorium, just one floor down from the famous National Rifle Association Firearms Museum.  Participants enjoyed a fine noon meal from the NRA Cafe located on site.
In attendance was House of Representatives member Delegate Charniele Herring.  Delegate Herring attended the entire seminar and reports that she gained much insight into the topic of law enforcement suicide and stress.
Please monitor the web site for information about upcoming seminars in your area.
