The schedule for the Awards banquet is as follows;

The most important part of the evening is the recognition of our fellow members who represent their departments, MAP and the profession with outstanding performance in their duties.

Officer Wellness and Mental Health
Don't wait until the crisis unfolds; see the everyday signs in the everyday things we do in this job and take action - for ourselves, each other, and our families!
Stay safe, check in, and watch out for each other.
Law enforcement is incredibly stressful and the current health culture is, in some cases, non-existent. Additionally, the tests offered to LEOs too often do not have the diagnostic capabilities to isolate high-risk individuals or provide a quality system of cardiac screening for low-risk individuals before they become critical.
Watch this webinar, sponsored by Sigma, where experts will discuss how critical screening and wellness is in policing.

Maine Warmline for First Responders and Healthcare Workers
Free Peer to Peer Support App from the All Clear FoundationGo To: https://responderrel8.com/
We know First Responder wellbeing is important to you, so we want to be sure you are aware of ResponderRel8 – the peer-to-peer app for First Responders that enables them to connect, commiserate and celebrate anonymously (if they choose).
As you know, the complexities and stressors of response work are higher than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic so, thanks to generous donations from All Clear Foundation’s supporters, we’re currently providing subscription-free access to ResponderRel8. First Responders can share information, stressors and experiences anonymously with their colleagues – without fear, stigma or politics getting in the way.
First Responders can access the app directly and chat with peers who have “been there, done that” – no association or organizational commitments required. It’s great for rural and volunteer responders who have very little access to resources as well as those in metro areas where it can complement in-person resources.
