SHIELD Training Initiative 

We provide tools and strategies to boost the safety, health, and effectiveness of law enforcement, first responders, and criminal justice personnel tasked with responding to the overdose crisis. 


SHIELD is designed to improve community response to the overdose crisis. 

Our training audiences are on the front lines of the overdose crisis. They've been asked to take on new roles and responsibilities in response to overdose and other emerging challenges, but they usually do not receive adequate tools or training. These demands compound their stress and burnout, reducing effectiveness and retention.

SHIELD fills this gap. Built on decades of experience and deep knowledge of the evidence base about what works and what doesn’t, SHIELD provides law enforcement, first responders, and criminal justice personnel with the tools they need to safeguard their physical and mental wellbeing, reduce addiction in the community, and accomplish their public safety mission. 


SHIELD is unique because it provides localized knowledge that training participants can put into practice immediately. Our team customizes the curriculum to the needs of specific jurisdictions and agencies. Customization is the engine for delivering frontline personnel the most relevant and actionable tools and strategies to improve their health, safety, and effectiveness.
