Romans 13

Romans 13:4-5 (NLT)
4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing
wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you.
They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do
what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment,
but also to keep a clear conscience.
Guarding Sheep, Pursuing Wolves. Saving Sheepdogs.

Statewide Peer Support Dispatch

In cooperation with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), the Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support (ALLEAPS) is pleased to announce the activation of a toll-free peer support telephone number. The call will be answered 24/7 365 days by ALEA Central Dispatch resulting in the activation of peer support personnel.

Since October 2017, ALEA and ALLEAPS have worked hand in hand to develop a quality peer support program with the goals of assisting law enforcement officers experiencing a personal and professional event. All peer support communication is privileged and confidential per Alabama Statue 36-21-14.

Secretary Taylor and his command staff have worked diligently with ALLEAPS to develop and provide peer support training both in the Trooper and SBI agent academies. The mutual goal is to set Alabama Peer Support as a Standard of Care for law enforcement officer peer support.

The goal of Peer Support in Alabama is to make contact with an officer or an agency within thirty minutes of receiving the call. Should you or your agency need assistance, please call:
833 219-2461

We are here to help

We are not sponsored by any particular agency, but supported by many Officers.

What we are NOT:

mental health professionals (We work with them, though)
into "touchy-feely" Kumbaya stuff
owned by ANY agency

What we do

No one understands cops like other cops. We are motivated by our compassion for our fellow officers, and are here to help them confront the realities of law enforcement. Many of the hazards we face are the unseen effects of the life of a law enforcement officer; the inherent stresses of the career and lifestyle of a cop affects us in ways that only another cop can understand. Officer survival also includes taking care of yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We're here to stand with you.

Here are just a few things we do:

We offer FREE, CONFIDENTIAL peer support. We respond to high stress events including: officer involved shootings, officer suicide, line-of-duty-deaths, suicidal officers, family struggles and more.
