Who should attend this event?
This event is designed for law enforcement officers and their adult family members At this time, it is not appropriate for younger children but we are working on that for future weekends!
How much does this wellness training event cost?
Behind the Badge Foundation is proud to offer this weekend with meals included at no cost to participants. We think the connection and learning that happens at this event is too important for cost to be prohibitive to your attendance!
Do I have to register?
Yes! It is important for the planning of this event that we know you and your spouse or family member are planning to attend.
What is the dress code?
This is a working weekend but we want you to be comfortable. Work Casual is a great look and will fit the weekend’s activities and plans.
What time should we plan to be there on Friday?
Great question! While the timing is still a bit fluid you can generally plan for registration to open at 5pm and the first reception at 5:30pm. On Saturday, we will start at 8am and learn through the day with a second reception around 5;30pm. On Sunday we will start again at 8am and end about 12pm. You are encouraged to make the most of the time and stay as long as you can around the planned activities.
Will there be a virtual option?
At this time, there are no plans to offer this event virtually. Behind the Badge Foundation Law Enforcement Family Network Conference is designed to be an in person event with specific attention paid to collaboration and connections that we believe can only be made in person.
What COVID protocols do we need to know?
For the duration of LEFN we will be following current Washington State mandates. We will adjust these protocols as needed to continue to follow current guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone attending.
