Event description
A Law Enforcement only marriage conference.

About this Event

What is a law enforcement marriage conference? Law enforcement first responders are under more scrutiny and pressure now more than ever before. The job can bring a significant amount of stress from shift work, repeated emotional/physical trauma, a continual state of hyper-vigilance and a host of additional problems and issues to deal with. This constant barrage can place a heavy toll on a marriage and ultimately the entire family structure. This conference is intended to provide a safe space for law enforcement first responders to receive support, encouragement and tools to help sustain their relationships, marriages, and families and to survive the negative effects of this rewarding but challenging career.

In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control released data on suicides in the general population. The #1 contributing factor to suicide was relationship problems at 42%. With law enforcement marriages believed to be ending in divorce at a rate higher than the general population, it's time to start addressing the stability of relationships, marriages and support structures.

Who is this conference for? Police officers, deputy sheriffs, state law enforcement officers, correctional officers and emergency call center personnel.

Do I have to be married to attend the conference? No. Law Enforcement personnel who are single, dating, engaged, married, widowed, or divorced are welcome to attend.

What should I expect to experience at this conference? Attendees will hear from speakers who are focused on delivering information and tools specifically to those in the law enforcement profession. Speaking sessions will be relatively short and followed up with relevant, interactive activities that will allow you the opportunity to see the information and tools in action. Attendees will also have access to additional referrals and resources that can strengthen relationships, marriages and families.

What will I gain by attending this conference? You will have the opportunity: *For you and your partner to understand that what we do in the law enforcement profession is not normal *To receive tools that you can put into practice immediately in your relationship, marriage, and/or family *To participate in experiential activities that can provide a deeper understanding and connection with your partner *To connect with others in the profession who want to improve, strengthen, or grow their relationship, marriage and/or family *To get connected with additional support, resources, or referrals

Who will be speaking at this conference? The keynote speakers for the conference are Scott and Leah Silverii. Scott is a retired police chief in the state of Louisiana. Leah is currently a New York Times best-selling author. Together they've been working with law enforcement couples for years and are frequent speakers at marriage events around the country. Scott and Leah are the founders of Blue Marriage and recently published "Uncuffed: Bulletproofing the Law Enforcement Marriage"
