Destination Zero, an initiative of the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum, is designed to help agencies improve the health and safety of law enforcement officers across the country, from agent to correctional officer, from trooper to patrolman, from sheriff to constable. Destination Zero is searching for programs that benefit all.
The primary goal of the Destination Zero program is to create a platform that provides all U.S. law enforcement agencies with the ability to research successful and/or promising officer safety and wellness programs and identify the resources necessary to begin their own risk management initiatives.
The Destination Zero Officer Safety and Wellness Conference, the annual gathering of law enforcement officials who are dedicated to improving the safety and wellness of their employees, will be held virtually from the National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, D.C. on October 15th, 2021, beginning at 9 am EST. This year’s conference will feature topics on OSW initiatives like Cardiac Wellness, Suicide Prevention and Officer Traffic Safety. The virtual conference will be livestreamed.
