We are looking forward to having Olivia Johnson, D.M., founder of the Blue Wall Institute, as one of this year's 2016 OACP/OSSA Fall Conference Speakers. Blue Wall Institute is an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for first responders through training and education on the dangers of the job. Johnson currently serves as an instructor and consultant, educating first responders, their families, and administrators on health and wellness, suicide awareness and prevention, peer support, stress and anger management, and leadership. Because of her dedication in raising awareness of the issues faced by first responders, Dr. Johnson was named the Illinois state representative and an active board member for the National Police Suicide Foundation, where she trains, conducts research, publishes articles, and communicates with departments in need.
Dr. Johnson’s role with the National Police Suicide Foundation has afforded her invitations to speak at multiple national conferences, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) National Academy Associates, Inc.; the International Association of Chiefs of Police; the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association; the National Interdiction; and the FBI Behavioral Science Unit’s Beyond Survival Toward Officer Wellness Symposium. She has also presented for the United States Attorney’s Office, the United States Probation and Parole, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Dr. Johnson is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, in which she served for eight years as an airfield management specialist in the 11th Airlift Squadron and the 458 Airlift Squadron at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. She worked for four years with the Sandoval, Illinois, Police Department and for a year with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Police Department.

The founding Chiefs envisioned creating an association that would promote training and information sharing to facilitate the professional growth of Chiefs of Police, command staff, supervisors, line officers and support personnel.
