| When the job gets to you, it’s great to be able to blow
off steam with a fellow officer. Most of the time, that’s
all it takes. But when the issues run deeper, COP 2 COP is ready
to help you and your family cope with and resolve your problems.
Our cop clinicians, peer counselors and peer supporters understand,
listen and want to help – 24-hours a day/7-days a week
If you are feeling depressed, helpless, overwhelmed, weak, withdrawn,
suicidal, emotionally and physically exhausted from a traumatic
incident or highly stressful situation, emotionally challenged
or financially drained – reach out for assistance- 1-866-Cop-2Cop.
Been there done that! Cops understand cops – that’s
why we started the hotline. The Cop 2 Cop hotline 1-866-COP
-2COP is staffed by retired officers who are licensed Clinical
Social Workers, known as Cop Clinicians, and specially trained
Mental Health professionals, along with volunteer retired officers
who are trained as peer supporters
Everyday we hear from law enforcement
professionals with issues similar to these:
- Marital Issues
- Substance Abuse
- Family Problems
- Legal Problems
- Suicidal Ideations
- Recent Loss
When you call the Cop 2 Cop hotline, you get
immediate access to these services:
- Peer and Clinical Support services
provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by law enforcement professionals,
psychologists/social workers and retired law enforcement volunteers
who are trained to work on the hotline as peer supporters. If
you want to vent to another cop who knows what you're going
through, Cop 2 Cop staff are ready to help.
- Clinical Assessments are available
for mild or severe problems and are determined by an experienced
professional counselor, who can recommend additional treatment
and follow-up with a vast network of professional resources
throughout the state. Not sure how to handle a problem, or believe
a custom designed clinical assessment could help you, call the
Cop 2 Cop hotline to discuss your situation with a trained professional
in the field of police psychology.
- Referrals – to one of
our Police Clinical Network Providers trained to treat the unique
needs of officers and their families. Treatment and services
are provided to help with family therapy, medication for depression,
detoxification, or anything you may require to be healthy and
back to your 'self again'.
- Critical Incident Stress Management
- if you're involved in a traumatic incident of any kind,
and you find the experience is haunting you in anyway, we can
provide debriefing services or dispatch a team to assist you.
The service is designed to help you talk about what happened;
understand what to expect and to help you identify if you have
any symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which may require
treatment. The de-briefing methods used follow the International
Guidelines established by the ICISF.
Our main focus is always to maintain confidentiality while ensuring the safety of all involved.
