Spreading the Word on Wellness

During Brian Manley’s time as the Chief of the Austin Police Department, employee health and wellness was a top internal priority for his administration. Brian created the Health and Wellness Bureau and appointed a Director that held the same level as his Assistant Chiefs.  He did this intentionally to highlight the importance of the Bureau. This alignment ensured the leadership of APD was aware of all situations related to employee health and wellness.

Brian’s dedication to the health and wellness of the officers in the Austin PD made him an excellent Police Chief and his experience creating an internal Health and Wellness Bureau made him a leading authority on the subject. It’s also why Brian saw a perfect fit with Off Duty Management’s core values of protecting and serving the brave men and women of law enforcement.

In addition to the usual responsibilities of being a company President, Brian uses this opportunity to spread the message of officer wellness and resiliency every chance he gets. On numerous occasions, he has been asked to speak about his experience developing the Health and Wellness Bureau and he helps agencies of all sizes understand that they can create a significant program with a similar focus.

Furthermore, Brian has leaned into the world of online communities with his very own podcast, Officer Wellness with Brian Manley, to reach more people in the law enforcement community. Each episode, Brian sits down with fellow law enforcement veterans and experts to discuss every facet of health and resiliency impacting officers today. He started this podcast in the hopes of spreading awareness, prompting more honest conversations, and encouraging officers who need help to get help.
