The Book 

Get your hands on the most comprehensive public safety funeral planning guide ever published, authored by an actual, hands-on funeral coordinator for the Los Angeles Police Department. During his decade in that position, John Cooley planned and over 80 funerals and memorials,25 of them LODDs. His experience is priceless, and he's sharing it with you so that your agency can be prepared when your time comes!


John Cooley put his voluminous knowledge of law enforcement funeral planning and
bereavement issues into ebook form.

From the "whos" and "hows" of making the heart-breaking death notification, to planning a motorcade, or where to position flowers at the interment, you'll learn successful strategies for dealing with issues from the mundane to the unexpected that have arisen during his career.

With personal anecdotes, fill-in-the-blank checklists for key personnel, religious funeral customs, suggested reading materials to keep on hand to assist survivors in their grief-to-healing journey, and other useful tools, this is a must-have resource for agencies of any size.

The funeral coordinator must be as detail-oriented, diligent, and competent as any lead investigator. This book contains all the information needed to gain that competence, to develop a top-notch agency-specific or multi-agency/mutual-aid funeral protocol, and to train people in its implementation.

Even though we hope you never have to use it.
