Healing in the Wake of Harm
The Mass Violence Advisory Initiative (MVAI) provides peer-to-peer assistance for law enforcement leaders following a mass violence event to maximize the safety and wellness of officers, other first responders, and the community. This MVAI Community of Practice is a virtual platform that provides a forum to connect with other law enforcement leaders, mental health and victim service providers, educators, and faith and community leaders to pose questions and share research, resources, ideas, and best practices to help law enforcement leaders and their communities heal in the aftermath of a mass violence incident.
