We believe that healthy policing begins at home and what better way to support a positive home environment than to offer healthy food options? Curated food boxes to be delivered to your door for a better price than a grocery store! We know how hard it is right now for many of our first responder families to schedule time to shop, so we were excited to partner with JW Catering to bring this to you. (California Bay Area Region)
In this time of change and uncertainty, we want to be encouraging and supportive. Let us come along side you and support you through prayer. Send us your prayer request! We have a team of prayer warriors ready to lift up your concerns and praises.
If there is one thing we know about as police wives, it’s how to adapt. We have become accustomed to varied schedules and last minute changes. While this doesn’t mean that we are immune to stress and anxiety, we ARE used to managing more day to day stress and anxiety than we even realize. The law enforcement life is unique. Sometimes you just need to ask another peace officer wife a question (is this normal?) We don't want you to walk this blue wife life alone.
We hope this Personal and Financial Diary will help you feel confident in handling your personal business if such an occasion should arise where your hero is incapable of making decisions or has passed away. Losing a loved one in the line of duty is difficult in itself. We advise that you sit with your loved ones to complete your personal diary.
The stressors that come from the law enforcement lifestyle can take its toll on the mental health of our officer. This Officer Safety Plan is created for use before or during a suicidal or mental crisis. This form should be filled out by or with your officer. Keep this Officer Safety Plan in an area where those who care for her/him can access it and use it as a support.
We understand that certain peace officer spouse groups have the desire to meet in a confidential environment following a critical incident. Our team can help facilitate a meeting by bringing inspiration, education, and interaction. If you have a group already established and would like training or support for effective communication and how to best support your peace officer please reach out to us, we are happy to gather with you.
From our families to yours, we are here to support and encourage you. With unpredictable times we are all feeling a bit more overwhelmed as we navigate through unfamiliar territory. We want you to have resources that can help you create a well balanced home during this pandemic. We will continue to add to the resources we offer and are creating to help you streamline life as a law enforcement spouse.
We see the importance of expressing yourself in a peaceful and meaning way.
We will be hosting a series of writing and other creative work from loved ones of officers through our social media platforms in the coming weeks. All work will be shared anonymously and will hopefully give a voice to our families and showcase the humanity behind the badges. To read some of our submissions go to our Blog tab under Express Yourself. If you would like to contribute a piece to this project, please see the guidelines for submission.
