The Virginia Law Enforcement Assistance Program (VALEAP) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) committed to serving law enforcement officers and first responders who have undergone traumatic critical incidents in the line of duty or in their personal lives. Established in 2008, in the wake of the mass shooting at Virginia Tech, the organization has served thousands of officers from over 90 Virginia agencies and trained over 500 law enforcement peers to date.
The program implements proven methods of peer support and mental health services to provide psychological and emotional healing to all participants. VALEAP‘s services include Critical Incident Stress Management and Post Critical Incident Seminars.
VALEAP has hosted 28 Post Critical Incident Seminars since 2008 where over 1,100 law enforcement professionals have been in attendance.
No one understands cops like other cops. That’s why the organization is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who are trained law enforcement professionals, including Municipal Police Officers, Sheriffs’ Deputies, College/University Police Officers, State Troopers, Law Enforcement Chaplains, Dispatchers, and culturally competent Mental Health Professionals.
