WHY WE DO THIS

We do this

because we have seen it help other Officers and Dispatchers.

We do this

because it works!

We do this

because it’s needed and it makes sense.

About Us

The Corporation is organized exclusively for providing crisis intervention training and response services to first responders and community members with a goal of equipping individuals and/or agencies to deal with critical incidents, within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), or the corresponding provision of any subsequent federal tax law.

We can help your agency with proper protocols for funerals, arranging for extra support for the agency during the days immediately following the incident, making sure the family is aware of the benefits available to them, and more. The more you prepare and train in ADVANCE, the better for all!

You should know this about us too:

ALLEAPS is made up of professional emergency responders who care enough to volunteer their time to “be there” for their brothers and sisters in tough times. ALLEAPS is privately funded. We have no employees, no government grants, and we are independent of being “controlled” by any agency or department. ALLEAPS proudly provides focused, practical peer support and training to emergency responders without cost.

Our purpose, motivation, and reason for existence are for the same reason you do your job. We are your fellow officers who answer the same calls, deal with the same people, write the same reports, and experience the same unique challenges as you do. If you have experience from the interior of our law enforcement brotherhood, you have brothers and sisters at ALLEAPS that understand things the way you do.
