ALLEAPS LAW ENFORCEMENT PEER SUPPORT TRAINING
Time & Location
About the Event
The Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support (ALLEAPS) and the Alabama Law
Enforcement Agency (ALEA) will provide Law Enforcement peer support training in cooperation
with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Training Academy, Fultondale, Alabama, July 26-29, 2021.
This 32-hour training has limited seating, and there is NO COST for the training. The training will
be conducted at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Training Academy, 3500 Happy Hollow Lane,
Fultondale, Alabama 35068.
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:
Multiple Fatality Collisions
Child Death, 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.
ALLEAPS is NOT counseling. ALLEAPS is a highly effective peer-driven support system that
exists exclusively within the law enforcement brotherhood, instead of with well-meaning mental
health professionals that cops typically do not trust.
Completing the 32-hour ALLEAPS program qualifies students to be certified peer support
members identified in Title 36-21-14, Code of Alabama. This certification provides law
enforcement officers the identical privileged communication protection currently in place for a
lawyer/client or doctor/patient.
This law enforcement training is RESTRICTED TO CERTIFIED PEACE OFFICERS and
RETIREES with valid credentials. Chaplains and mental health professionals who comply with
the requirements of 36-21-14, Code of Alabama, upon approval, may be permitted to attend.
The officer should have a good reputation and understanding of the law enforcement
brother/sisterhood, along with the willingness to step up and act when another police officer is in
Sponsored by the Houston County Sheriff’s Office, Dothan, Alabama.
