COPLINE

SUMMARY OF PROGRAM
  
Copline is the first national law enforcement officers hotline in the country that is manned by retired law enforcement officers. Retired law enforcement officers are trained in active listening and bring the knowledge and understanding of the many psychosocial stressors that officers go through both and off the job. Active officers and or their families can call 24 hours and day 7 days a week and be assured that there is a trained retired officer on the other end of the line whether the caller is calling while on the duty or off. The line is strictly confidential and there is no fear of punitive repercussions from making the call.
  
THE FACTS
  
Within the police occupation, officers have an 8-fold risk of killing themselves over being killed by a perpetrator. They also have a 3-fold risk of suicide over on-duty accidents. Officers have an increased rate of separation or divorce within the first three years of employment, and increase rates of substance use when compared to the general population. They are exposed to more trauma in a day than civilians are in a life time. It is said that 38-58% of all active officers have PTSD and few are treated. This can lead to depression and suicide. Officers who are exposed to trauma have a 5-fold risk of suicidal thinking.
  
TARGET AUDIENCE
  
Copline is the first national peer to peer hotline exclusively for law enforcement officers and their families. The highest suicide rates in law enforcement are in rural areas in deep undercover operations. The officers are isolated from the ones they love and take on a persona that is needed to survive in the element they are working in. It is imperative that the officers feel there is a safe place to call and get someone that can understand what they are going through. Many officers do not see the changes in their own personalities over time; it is the one’s closest to the officer. The line will also be a safe place for spouses, significant others and children to call as well to talk to someone that can help them understand what their loved one might be going through without the fear of repercussions to the officer.
  
SUCCESSES
  
Copline has been written up in the National FOP newspaper as well as in many papers locally throughout the Country. Stephanie Samuels, the creator and Founder of Copline has spoken at the American Police Beat Conference at Harvard Law School Labor and Work life Program and been featured in the American Police Beat Magazine. In the last 2 months, over 200 calls and emails from volunteers have come into Copline. Florida has created a law enforcement officer’s suicide prevention task force which Copline has been recognized by as being part of the solution to the problem.

AMERICAN CORRECTIONAL ASSOCIATION

The History of the American Correctional Association

For more than 147 years, the American Correctional Association has championed the cause of corrections and correctional effectiveness. Founded in 1870 as the National Prison Association, ACA is the oldest association developed specifically for practitioners in the correctional profession. During the first organizational meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio, the assembly elected then-Ohio Governor and future President Rutherford B. Hayes as the first President of the Association. 

The Declaration of Principles developed at the first meeting in 1870 became the guidelines for corrections in the United States and Europe. At the ACA centennial meeting in 1970, a revised set of Principles, reflecting advances in theory and practice, was adopted by the Association. The principles were updated in 1982 and lastly in 2002.

At the 1954 Congress of Correction in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the name of the American Prison Association was changed to the American Correctional Association, reflecting the expanding philosophy of corrections and its increasingly important role within the community and society as a whole. 

Today, the ACA has thousands of members from all over the world.

FEDERAL OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH

Law Enforcement Medical Programs

Today, more than ever before, members of the Federal law enforcement community have increasing demands and stressors placed on them. These stressors tend to intensify the already arduous and hazardous nature of their jobs, and increase the need to make workplace safety an agency priority.

Federal agencies are tasked with ensuring that law enforcement personnel are medically and psychologically fit to perform the full range of their duties without undue risk of injury to themselves, co-workers, and/or the public. Federal Occupational Health (FOH) can help Federal agencies satisfy these agency and regulatory requirements.

FOH’s experienced occupational medicine physicians and staff specialize in providing services consistent with the unique needs of law enforcement personnel. FOH’s staff provides pre-placement and periodic medical examination services that are specifically tailored to law enforcement officers. Occupational medicine physicians, or Reviewing Medical Officers, make recommendations to agencies about the abilities of law enforcement officers or applicants to safely and efficiently perform potentially hazardous duties without undue risks of injuries to themselves or others.

Contact FOH today to learn how we can help your agency with the special needs of law enforcement personnel.

High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) Program

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program, created by Congress with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, provides assistance to Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies operating in areas determined to be critical drug-trafficking regions of the United States.

The purpose of the program is to reduce drug trafficking and production in the United States by:

  • Facilitating cooperation among Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to share information and implement coordinated enforcement activities;
  • Enhancing law enforcement intelligence sharing among Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies;
  • Providing reliable law enforcement intelligence to law enforcement agencies needed to design effective enforcement strategies and operations; and
  • Supporting coordinated law enforcement strategies which maximize use of available resources to reduce the supply of illegal drugs in designated areas and in the United States as a whole.

There are currently 28 HIDTAs, which include approximately 18.3 percent of all counties in the United States and a little over 65.5 percent of the U.S. population.  HIDTA-designated counties are located in 49 states as well as Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the District of Columbia, and the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon.  View a map of the HIDTAs here.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF POLICE CHAPLAINS

As people come into membership of the International Conference of Police Chaplains (ICPC), they often ask what the ICPC is and isn’t. Often people make assumptions when the answers to these two key questions go un-answered or un-communicated. That can be dangerous and damaging to both the chaplain and organization. To better clarify the issue, this is what the ICPC is and what it isn’t.

ICPC is:

An international, professional membership organization made up of chaplains and liaison officers from different faith groups and law enforcement agencies.

A training and equipping organization to assist individual chaplains and/or their departments.

An organization that allows an individual’s ministry to be expanded and expressed in a new way.

An organization that assists in the starting of chaplaincy programs or strengthens existing programs.

An organization offering professional training levels to chaplains of different and varying levels of experience.

An organization that encourages and fosters networking between chaplains

An organization that seeks partnerships with other professional organizations and chaplaincy groups.

An organization that expresses itself with religious tolerance and respect for people of all faith traditions or no faith tradition.

An organization that provides a safe-haven for wounded chaplains

An organization that has a world-vision for chaplaincy

ICPC isn’t

An extension of your denomination or faith group

A Christian-only organization

A “certifying” agency

An ecclesiastical endorsing or licensing entity

A place to build a resume

A clique, club, or private organization

Our Mission Statement

The ICPC’s mission statement says:  “Developing Professional Chaplains through Dynamic Education and Support.” 

This is what we strive to do. 

This concept is further defined through our core values, which are:

We respect and honor the badge and the men and women who have earned the right to wear it

We pledge availability to the needs of law enforcement officers and victims of crime

We subject our lives and our office to the scrutiny of accountability to ensure integrity

We offer professionalism of service, including confidential listening, and spiritual counsel
