Your agency, your protocol. That sounds so simple, but many agencies
believe that they can take a protocol from another agency, file it, and when a death occurs, pull it out and be
able to manage their funeral. Sadly, there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to funeral planning, so they quickly
discover that the protocol doesn’t work efficiently for them.
Now is the time to develop an agency-specific protocol. Do it before
you need it, because odds are you will need it one day. The Boy Scouts have it right: Be Prepared.
John is available to guide agencies in developing agency-specific
protocols. Small and medium-sized agencies that are neighbors should consider merging services and resources by
developing a multiple-agency mutual-aid protocol. There aremany options available to ensure agencies are
well-prepared for responding to an officer’s death, regardless of the circumstances.
