Employee Mental Health Services 

The purpose of this policy to outline this law enforcement agency’s response to personnel requiring mental health services.

The duties and responsibilities of the law enforcement profession are often emotionally demanding and difficult, and officers generally risk experiencing stress and related emotional difficulties. Emotional problems may have a negative impact on personnel performance, and, in extreme instances, may present a danger to the welfare and safety of officers, their families, the general public and fellow officers. Therefore, it is the policy of this law enforcement agency to provide all personnel with access to mental health services to help them preempt and resolve emotional difficulties and, under emergency conditions, to take those measures necessary in the provision of mental health services to ensure the well-being and safety of officers and the general public.
