|Our Mission |
The mission of the North Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program (NCLEAP) is to respond to the actual needs of law enforcement officers, first responders, their families and civilian staff. The work of NCLEAP is focused on turning vulnerability into strength through education, training, peer support, and pastoral care.
We accomplish this mission through a group of trained volunteer law enforcement officers, first responders and chaplains who are prepared to provide immediate peer support to our brothers and sisters who have been involved in critical incidents and those who are dealing with daily stresses unique to the profession.
Critical Incident Stress
While 'everyday' cumulative stress can take its toll, critical incident stress is different in that it directly relates to a dramatic event or events inherent in the life of a law enforcement officer that can result in a number of debilitating symptoms. These events often result in an overwhelming sense of vulnerability and/or loss of control. Critical Incident Stress includes, but is not limited to:
· Line of duty shootings
· Getting shot or seriously injured on the job
· High-speed pursuits that end in tragedy
· Events that bring prolonged and critical media attention
NCLEAP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our services are offered at no charge to the men and women who serve as law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency service personnel. Our funding comes through donations of individuals like you.
