Congratulations to Shon Barnes

Subject: OSW Group appointment

I am writing to share some news regarding a recent appointment. I have been appointed to the National Officer Safety and Wellness Group.

The National Officer Safety and Wellness (OSW) Group brings together representatives from law enforcement, federal agencies, and the research community to address the significantly high number of officer gunfire fatalities and to improve officer safety and wellness. During quarterly meetings, participants contribute to the creation of officer safety and wellness tools and resources.

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) established the OSW Group at the request of Attorney General Eric Holder (now under Loretta Lynch). (

It should be noted: During our last meeting we recommend a $1.8 million grant for a randomized control study of two man patrol cars verses one man patrol cars. In addition, we recommended an $80K grant for a meta-analysis of two man patrol cars verses one man patrol cars. We are also interested in studies which focus on the issue of officer involved ambushes, and the affects of officer morale on safety.

I was recommended for the group by Nancy Rodriguez, the director of the National Institute of Justice.   Hope all is well. See you guys on the 12th.
