document Peer Support (ALLEAPS)

In Police Standard Operating Procedures

Law enforcement duties often expose employees to both job-related stress and work-related traumatic events, e.g., officer involved shooting. These stressful situations may cause strong emotional reactions or distress or have the potential to interfere with the ability to function optimally in an employee’s personal or professional life. It is recommended that your procedures manual include a written policy that explains the availability of peer support through the Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support (ALLEAPS).
