Improving and expanding support for officers coping with the psychological and emotional consequences that come from performing their duties as Police Officers is part of our ongoing commitment to reform and consent decree compliance.
We will continue to provide a comprehensive response to all Department members who have experienced traumatic incidents whether on or off duty.
Department members experiencing mental health, substance abuse, and other emotional challenges will be provided the support needed for treatment of these conditions.
Should an officer or an officer’s family member need services in an area that is outside the expertise of our clinicians, we will provide an appropriate referral to a vetted expert.
The mental health and wellness of our department members will remain a top priority for CPD. As we continue to improve our wellness and support systems, we welcome you to join us in making CPD a better department for all of Chicago.
