Alumnus Dissertation Shares Profound Findings on the Impact of Police Officer Trauma

PhD in Leadership and Change alumnus Dr. John Littlewolf has published his dissertation entitled, Police Officer Trauma in Rural Minnesota: A Narrative Study. As a current law enforcement officer and researcher, this is an insider-study. Dr. Littlewolf began his law enforcement career in 2009 and has served three tribal law enforcement agencies in Minnesota. In his 10 years of experience he has worked as a patrol officer, a domestic violence and sexual assault investigator, a criminal investigator, and finally, as a conservation officer. This narrative study highlights the intersection of trauma, law enforcement culture, and solutions in rural Minnesota to highlight findings that show the support structures in place for rural officers, the areas for improvement, and resource direction.
