Who and What ALLEAPS is:

  1. Structure of ALLEAPS: Alabama Law Enforcement Alliance for Peer Support (ALLEAPS): This non-profit organization is under the leadership of Dr. Tim Faulk and is an approved 501-C3 cooperation. ALLEAPS maintains the overall operation of LEAPS in the state of Alabama. ALLEAPS provides the organizational structure of the website and related matters. ALLEAPS has a Board of Directors, and a Certified Public Accountant monitors any and all funds.
  2. Implementation of ALLEAPS: Alabama is already divided into seven federally recognized regions by the Department of Homeland Security.
    • These seven regions have been adopted by ALEA and have been utilized for resource management since 2015.
    • ALLEAPS in Alabama will function under seven Regional Coordinators from varying law enforcement agencies.
    • A regionally-based coordinator will increase efficiency and provide a rapid response to peer support events.
    • Regional control is more personal, trusted, and effective than a large bureaucracy.

What is peer support and how you can help.

This is a multi-faceted approach using first responders to provide support for fellow first responders.
