Counseling
Services


The Department recognizes that police officers and their families must have a place to go where they can talk about and deal with professional and personal problems without the fear of the Department having any involvement or knowledge. This is why your right to CONFIDENTIALITY is a cornerstone of our programs. CONFIDENTIALITY is protected and maintained (please refer to Department Employee Resource E06-01, as well as state and federal guidelines Rule 501 of the Federal Rules of Evidence, 13 June, 1996 and HIPPA). In addition, we are not required to, and do not keep any files, records, or notes regarding communication or contact with our office.
