The Texas Department of Public Safety has an internal program to provide peer support and information to DPS employees who are veterans. The Department's Veteran Assistance Program (DVAP) provides support and assistance to Department employees activated for military duty by order of the President of the United States in support of an ongoing recognized conflict. Each activated employee is assigned a veteran sponsor to provide support at pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment. Assistance is also provided to the activated employee's family members and supervisor throughout the cycle of deployment.
Any employee who is a veteran may access specialized peer support as needed regardless of deployment status.
For assistance, contact Victim and Employee Support Services by phone at 512-424-2211.
For employment information, veterans may contact Human Resources at 512-424-5900.
