Peer support is a rewarding experience. Officers get to share the tools, skills, and information they have learned to transform their own life with other officers going through similar struggles. Not only can they contribute to the lives of others, but they can also improve their own recovery and well-being in the process. As more agencies learn about the impact of peer support, they are adopting a peer support program. The cost of training and man-hours are usually offset by the potential of retaining experienced officers, reduction in sick leave used and overall well-being of their department. The growth of peer support has the potential to radically transform the ways departments support people and maintain one of their most valuable assets… well experienced officers.
