      Usher, Laura; Friedhoff, Stefanie; Cochran, Sam, Major; Pandya, Anand A. (Washington, DC: Office of Community Oriented Policing Services., 2016)
      Mass casualty events, despite their frequency in the news, are relatively rare in the career of a police chief.

Our hope is to contribute to the conversation about police officer wellness and to support chiefs who face these incidents in the future. - from Forward
