(Hillsboro) Deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will soon take part in a wellness seminar that can help a member of law enforcement to be able to balance work and personal life. Lieutenant Colonel Tim Whitney says he’s taken part in the same wellness training before and says it very helpful.
Lieutenant Colonel Whitney says Dr. Kevin Gilmartin teaches the course….and stresses the importance of leaving the work emotions at the door when you return home from a shift.
Lieutenant Colonel Whitney says it’s also important for officers to have a social life away from work.
The wellness seminar and training will take place over a three or four-day period, so every member of the office can take part in it while rotating shifts to keep deputies on the road.
