The professionalization of policing has been a hot topic recently and so for our latest episode of Blue Line, The Podcast, we tackle education in policing and its relationship to resilience as well as lifelong learning for leaders in law enforcement.

Dr. Lauren D. Eisler, the dean of the faculty of Human and Social Sciences at the Brantford Campus of Wilfrid Laurier University, joins us for this compelling and lively conversation.

Prior to her current appointment, Eisler was the Inter-Faculty Associate Dean: Academic Development. Here, she oversaw the development of both the BA Honours in Policing and the Master of Public Safely programs for the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences.

She explains the value for officers in taking a new, free course from Laurier Online, a special edition based on modules within the school’s Positive Psychology Certificate. She also addresses the connection between education and well-being overall as well as advice for online and remote learning platforms as the world pivots due to COVID-19.
