Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The Professional Counseling Division / Employee Assistance Program, (EAP) is a unit of the Chicago Police Department that’s dedicated to providing “free and confidential” programs for all active and retired department members and their families. This unit was established in order to assist department members in the management of the demands of their job, and its impact on their family and professional life.

Our staff consists of clinical therapists, sworn police officers who are alcohol and substance abuse counselors and one (1) sworn police officer who is assigned as the Peer Support Program Manager. All members of our staff specialize in working with police personnel and their families. In order to maintain the privacy and confidentiality, we are located in our own standalone building in the West Loop with plenty of available parking. Our services are available by appointment, or a 24 hour emergency assistance. Call (312) 743-0378.
