Our Beliefs:

  • That sworn/civilian police and corrections personnel are in a challenging role and often experience unique stressors within the First Responder community
  • That active/retired – sworn/civilian police and corrections personnel professionally diagnosed with an operational stress injury, including post-traumatic stress, should be viewed as an “HONOURABLE INJURY” and that such psychological injuries should not STIGMATIZEmembers with labels such as disease, illness or disorder
  • That police and corrections personnel professionally diagnosed with an operational stress injury, including post-traumatic stress, should be “presumed” to be the result of either a single traumatic event or a cumulation of traumatic incidents as a result of the members employment (presumptive legislation)
