Law Enforcement

policeCounselingHero

As a Police Officer you daily:

  1. Leave your family, not knowing what challenges or traumatic situations you may face
  2. Put on your uniform, badge, and gun to be respected by some, and hated by others
  3. Deal with the pain and suffering of the innocent, inflicted by the senseless acts of others
  4. Are expected to exercise professionalism and self-control, no matter how intense or life-threatening the situation

All eyes are on you, scrutinizing your every split-second decision:

  1. Command Staff
  2. The community you serve and protect
  3. The Media

If you are in an officer-involved shooting:

  1. You are immediately put on administrative leave
  2. A departmental investigation begins
  3. Your family and friends may see you in the news—not necessarily in a good light
  4. You are not allowed to talk about the incident
  5. Feeling alone, you can be left believing that the tide has turned against you

The stress from an incident, or years of accumulative, can leave you with:

  1. Difficulty sleeping
  2. Nightmares
  3. Flashbacks
  4. Depression
  5. Anxiety
  6. Anger
  7. Verbal or Physical Abuse of your loved ones
  8. Thoughts of suicide
  9. Emotionally withdrawing or isolation
  10. PTSD

YOU KNOW YOU NEED HELP, BUT YOU ARE AFRAID OF:

Someone finding out and thinking you are weak or that you can’t do your job
Loss of respect form your fellow officers or Command Staff
Losing your job

It makes such a difference when you are able to speak to someone who understands and appreciates the challenges law enforcement officers face. Thank you for all your support to me and so many other law enforcement professionals.
