Our trained employee volunteers, called the Peer Support Team, provide peer-driven support to employees and their families and to others in the law enforcement profession involved in, or exposed to, both work­ related and personal critical incident stress and trauma. Our Peer Support personnel are trained in critical incident stress management and are supported by the VESS licensed mental health professionals.
