In 2019, the City of Dayton, Ohio experienced multiple crises and significant incidents. Each one could have been the most impactful event of the decade. The most widely known of these events was the mass shooting in the Oregon District on August 4, 2019. Major Wendy Stiver (ret) was the Commander of the affected patrol division and a resident of the Oregon District. While the world focused on the shooting as an incident, Major Stiver managed the aftermath in a community reeling from the shooting and struggling to adapt to a new reality. Simultaneously, Major Stiver was working with the National Institute of Justice to study resiliency training research.
