Law enforcement is a unique occupation whose members have unique needs. It can be difficult to find mental health and wellness practitioners who clearly understand the nature of the law enforcement profession. As stressors facing law enforcement increase, identifying culturally competent wellness professionals to meet the needs of sworn and non-sworn employees and their families has become a national priority.
The FOP Wellness Provider Vetting Guide provides recommended guidelines for identifying and selecting wellness providers for law enforcement professionals and their families. With step-by-step checklists, the guide lists topics for consideration when choosing a provider, program, or wellness product. Not only for the individual officer, this publication will also provide law enforcement agencies and leaders with a path to providing the best services for their personnel.
