The Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support (ALLEAPS), in cooperation with the Tuscaloosa Police Department, will provide peer support training at The Tuscaloosa Law Enforcement Academy: APOSTC, 7601 Robert Cardinal Road, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, March 18 – 21, 2024.  This 32-hour training has limited seating, and there is no cost for the training.


The purpose of this course is to provide law enforcement officers with a distinct skill set, allowing them to deal with and assist other officers following high-stress job-related events such as:

  • Officer-Involved Shooting
  • Officer Down
  • Mass Casualty
  • Custodial Death
  • Suicide
  • Child Death, etc.


Additional topics explain the reasons for (and provide solutions):

  • Why do police officers live 20 years less than the general public?
  • Why do law enforcement officers commit suicide at 3-4 times the rate more than we are killed in the line of duty?
  • Why career police officers in the U.S. are ranked first in Alcoholism, Divorce, Heart Disease, and PTSD!


ALLEAPS is NOT counseling.  ALLEAPS is a highly effective peer-driven support system that exists exclusively within the law enforcement brotherhood instead of with well-meaning mental health professionals that officers typically don’t trust.


Completing this peer support program qualifies officers to be certified peer support members as identified in Title 36-21-14, Code of Alabama.  This certification provides them with the identical privileged communication protection currently in place for a lawyer/client or doctor/patient.


This law enforcement training is RESTRICTED TO CERTIFIED PEACE OFFICERS, RETIREES, EMA OFFICERS, AND 911 DISPATCHERS/CALL-TAKERS with valid credentials.  Upon approval, Chaplains and Mental health professionals who comply with the requirements of 36-21-14, Code of Alabama, may be permitted to attend.


The officer should have a good reputation, an understanding of the law enforcement brother/sisterhood, and the willingness to step up and take action when another police officer is in need.
