With the vision of Steve Jobs and the heart of Saint Francis of Assisi, Dr. Killeen has pioneered Operation Longevity, which emphasizes practical, realistic strategies for stress and trauma resilience; how honored we were to have him model so gracefully this approach when we needed it the most.

Peter Killeen is the genuine article. He has an understanding and commitment to the law enforcement professional that is rare, at best. The fundamentals set forth by Dr. Killeen and Susan Shapiro in ‘Operation Longevity’ are indispensable to today’s law enforcement professionals. It has the power to save lives and help the countless numbers of our brothers and sisters who may otherwise, unnecessarily continue to suffer in silence.

Detective Kevin M. (Retired)

Operation Longevity is a testament to Dr. Killeen’s dedication to law enforcement professionals and civilians alike. I was forced to Operation Longevity as a scared 20yr. old Detective involved in a critical incident. Peter reached out to me and assured me everything would be alright. He was right and I was thankful that someone had the foresight to know that I needed Operation Longevity when I did not. Eight years later I showed up again at Operation Longevity’s door. Desperately looking for help in dealing with another critical incident. Without a doubt, I am alive today because of Peter and Operation Longevity. In a time that my world was ravaged by war. I found peace through Operation Longevity. Any officer not taking this course is just like going out on patrol without your vest and gun! Operation Longevity saves lives!!

Operation Longevity offers anyone in law enforcement the essential tools to manage what Peter Killeen and Susan Shapiro refer to as law enforcement’s constant companion – stress – and the toll it takes on those in law enforcement and their families. ‘Operation Longevity’ provides thoughtful, practical tips and strategies for improving mindfulness and resiliency skills, as if it were the ‘missing manual’ that every graduate from a law enforcement academy should receive. It is one of the few opportunities that those in law enforcement can get sound advice on managing stress from someone who has been there and understands the stigma and challenges of seeking help.

Operation Longevity will change how stress in law enforcement is viewed and what is needed to keep both men and women safe and healthy as they move through their careers toward retirement. What Killeen and Shapiro have done is taken the stigma out of the equation, paving a path for achieving a more healthy and sustainable life. A must-read for anyone in the law enforcement profession.

Operation Longevity is a brilliant and timely approach to teaching ‘Self-Care’ for the real American Heroes- our law enforcement professionals. It is thorough, thoughtful, and stands out as a testimonial to resiliency-based training. More importantly, it is evident that Peter’s experiences have given him the ‘street creds’ that law enforcement officers can readily embrace.  In the words of one of our police officer clients, ‘If you haven’t been there and done it, you just don’t know’.  It’s that simple. Peter has been there and done it.

Killeen and Shapiro provide officers with the vital tools for self-care that, when utilized, will result in physical, emotional, and spiritual health.  ‘Responsibility for people’ is an occupational demand for law enforcement officers.  ‘Operation Longevity’ teaches officers how to take on the responsibility of caring for themselves. While in training, officers are taught that their first and most important job is to come home at the end of their shift.  ‘Operation Longevity’ will help them return home ‘whole’ at the end of their careers.
