Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a significant public health concern nationally and in the state of Washington. It is estimated that in Washington State alone approximately 15,444 veterans will be returning to their communities with a probable TBI. This, in addition to nonmilitary related TBI cases, makes the probability of a Patrol or Corrections Officer coming into contact with someone suffering from a TBI very likely. In addition, the symptoms and behaviors associated with this disorder further increase the chances that an individual with a TBI will come into contact with Law Enforcement and Corrections. It is of the utmost importance that officers learn to recognize and respond appropriately to individuals with a TBI and if possible connect them to appropriate resources.
This course was developed to train officers to develop resources and training so they can return to their respective agencies to present at role call and or in-service training opportunity.
Students completing this course will be able to provide basic training on recognition and response to individuals with TBI.
