Our goal at Under the Shield is to meet the “unique” needs of law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical service, military personnel and their family members by providing support through confidential services, education, and public awareness. Military and emergency services such as law enforcement statistically lead our society in suicide, alcohol and substance abuse, domestic violence, divorce, depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. These statistics are indicative of the serious lack of support and resources for law enforcement personnel and their families. Thus, the necessity for the creation of Under the Shield.
What We Offer
Instruction and services are provided on an individual, family and/or group basis. At times, emergency personnel require services and support on a variety of levels. Programs of instruction are developed on a client by client basis, with a variety of avenues or options available.
