The Heroes Path to Excellence in Law Enforcement - Barrington, IL May 23, 2017 

What is it that allows some men and women to remain calm, focused, in control and confident, draw on their training and preparation, and perform heroically in the middle of tense, uncertain and rapidly evolving events? Why is it that when some men and women, when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles and challenges have the ability to rise above and succeed despite the magnitude of those challenges? What is it about the way these men and women, these heroes, think, act, train, prepare and respond that allows them to perform at the highest levels?

The Heroes Path to Excellence in Law Enforcement will explore these very questions and provide simple, proven strategies that every law enforcement professional can apply in his or her own life to guide them on the heroes path to personal and professional excellence.
