Peer Support

In this program, established Sheriff’s Office employees act as peer support advisors to our employees to help them deal with personal and professional problems.

Peer support-based interventions are designed to help employees and their families cope with a range of life circumstances. The rationale for the program is that people who share common conditions or experiences can cope more effectively by discussing their experiences, sharing practical information and resources, and offering moral support.

Among other things, the peer support program holds presentations for new employees and their families and talk to them about the stresses in law enforcement.
