Dothan: September 16-19, 2024

The Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support (ALLEAPS), in cooperation with the Dothan Police Department, will provide Law Enforcement peer support training at the Wiregrass Public Safety Center, 100 Public Safety Way, Dothan, Alabama 36303, September 16 – 19, 2024.  This training begins every morning at 0800, concludes at 1700, has limited seating, and is provided at no expense to the officers.

The purpose of this course is to provide law enforcement officers with a distinct skill set, allowing them to deal with and assist other officers following high-stress job-related events such as:

  • Officer-Involved Shooting
  • Suicide
  • Officer Down
  • Custodial Death
  • Child Deaths, etc.

Additional topics explain the reasons for (and provide solutions):

  • Why police officers live 20 years less than the general public.
  • Why law enforcement officers commit suicide at 3-4 times the rate at which we are killed in the line of duty?
  • Why career police officers in the U.S. are ranked first in Alcoholism, Divorce, Heart Disease, and PTSD.

Completing the 32-hour ALLEAPS training qualifies students to be certified peer support members identified in Title 36-21-14, Code of Alabama.  This certification provides officers with identical privileged communication protection as a lawyer/client or doctor/patient.

This law enforcement training is RESTRICTED TO CERTIFIED PEACE OFFICERS, RETIREES, EMA OFFICERS, AND 911 DISPATCHERS/CALL-TAKERS with valid credentials.  Upon approval, chaplains and mental health professionals who comply with the requirements of 36-21-14, Code of Alabama, may be permitted to attend.

The officer should have a good reputation and understanding of the law enforcement brother/sisterhood and the willingness to step up and take action when another officer needs support.
