Subtitle/Series Name:
Abstract:
he guidelines rest on the view that police agencies are responsible for providing liaison assistance to the immediate survivors of police officers who die, to clarify survivor benefits, and to provide tangible and intangible emotional support during the period of readjustment for the surviving family. Individual sections provide definitions, instructions for notification of the family, guidelines for assisting the family at the hospital, and a list of ways to provide support for the family during the wake and the funeral. Further sections explain how to provide information and assistance on benefits and continued followup with the family. Support for the surviving family awaiting the trial of the suspect in the killing and additional issues to consider are also discussed. source
