The Largo Police Department Prioritizes Officer Health
Officer health and safety are top priority for the Largo Police Department. The department is always looking for the best ways to help officers and dispatchers manage the day-to-day challenges of the job and to truly thrive. The custom Lighthouse app will make it easy for all department employees to access vital information and make even better use of the resources they already have in place. Lighthouse Health and Wellness is confident that the launch of this custom application will play a key role in supporting the continued success of health and safety initiatives at the Largo Police Department.
Scholarship Resources Provided by NCPCV
Largo Police Department’s application was provided by a scholarship offered by The National Center for Prevention of Community Violence (NCPCV), covering a one-year subscription to a customized Lighthouse Health & Wellness mobile app and web-portal. NCPCV received a 2020 grant from Motorola Solutions Foundation in generous support of this project. Motorola Solutions Foundation awards grants each year to organizations, such as Destination Imagination, which support and advance public safety programs and technology and engineering education initiatives.
