Racine Police Peer Support Purpose
The Racine Police Peer Support Team recognizes the value of a peer-based program to assist with personal and/or professional problems.
The Racine Peer Support is composed of a group of peer volunteers that are available to any member of the department & their family. This provides an avenue for members to talk out personal and/or professional problems confidentially with someone who understands and cares.
The Peer Support Program’s goal is to assist peers with stresses caused by personal and work related problems and help them to continue to be a productive member of the department and society as a whole.
Peer support program can enable a police department to actively work to prevent and treat the crippling after-effects of trauma.
