Annual Blue Tie Gala

Join us for a catered cocktail hour and 4 course meal with a nationally recognized speaker and author to raise support and awareness for mental health resources to Law Enforcement Officers in our community.

Support Our Law Enforcement

In 2021, 150 officers were killed in the performance of their duties. However, during the same time frame, 157 officers took their own lives. Statistically, one officer commits suicide every 56 hours.

Mental health support has never been more critical for our local Law Enforcement

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman

In their description of Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, Slate Magazine said, “Grossman cuts such a heroic, omnicompetent figure, he could have stepped out of a video game.” He has five patents to his name, has published four novels, two childrens’ books, and six non-fiction books to include his “perennial bestseller” On Killing (with over half a million copies sold), and a New York Times best-selling book co-authored with Glenn Beck. Col. Grossman’s research was cited by the President of the United States in a national address, and he has testified before the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Congress, and numerous state legislatures. He has served as an expert witness and consultant in state and Federal courts. He helped train mental health professionals after the Jonesboro school massacre, and he was also involved in counseling or court cases in the aftermath of the Paducah, Springfield, Littleton and Nickel Mines Amish school massacres. Since his retirement from the US Army in 1998, he has been on the road almost 300 days a year, for over 19 years, as one of our nation’s leading trainers for military, law enforcement, mental health providers, and school safety organizations.
