I feel the PCIS can
help officers get through many issues that we come in contact with but
are afraid to talk about with others. This course helped me let down some
of those barriers.
The PCIS gave me the chance to talk to my peers in law enforcement
and express my feelings without judgement. I had never expressed my feelings
about the incident and felt guilty about the death of the individual.
I have waited my entire law enforcement career to let out my frustration
and concerns to others who have suffered similar circumstances without
being second guessed, ridiculed or judged.
I wish the PCIS were more accessible and had come about sooner.
I liked the PCIS because it helped me make sense of the issues that
I faced with the shooting.
The program allowed me to express feelings that I was not able to
share before. It helped me realize that there were some issues that I
had not yet come to grips with. It helped me realize that I was not alone
in how I felt.
The PCIS staff helped me confront my problems with my incident and
I left the seminar knowing I can face it, but it will not be in my face.
The seminar was very helpful. I now know others who have been through
similar incidents. I now know that it does take time to heal mentally,
that others have been through worse experiences and if they can go on
with their careers, I can too.
This course has changed everything for me
completely. It is
one of the best and only truly helpful things since my incident.
