What is Peer Support
Communication between you and a peer supporter is CONFIDENTIAL and must be considered privileged by the Department except for matters which involve a threat to life or serious or dangerous violation of the law or policy.
Peer support is a high impact, culturally appropriate, and cost effective method of keeping officers emotionally healthy. Public Safety Professionals can talk privately and creditably about personal or professional problems with trained peers who understand because they have "been there. "
