Law Enforcement Personnel

For Law Enforcement Personnel, trauma exposure is an expected, everyday occurrence. It’s a key part of your job …. it’s what you are paid to do.

But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. The stress and uncertainty encountered on the job can affect your sleep, appetite, judgment, attitude and decision-making ability. It can also affect your relationships – both professional and personal. Over-dependence on your ability to “emotionally detach” – an important safety mechanism on the job – can disrupt and aggravate family relationships and workplace dynamics. And if you lose your “edge,” it can compromise your safety and the safety of others.

Law enforcement personnel carry many contingency tools to keep them safe, both in and out of the job. Counseling is one of those tools.

Hinkle & Associates understands these situations and experiences, and offers special considerations for Law Enforcement Personnel:

• Confidentiality and respect for privacy
• Professional Integrity from a practice solely owned and operated by a fellow police officer
• Self-pay arrangements available to avoid filing of insurance claims and records of treatment

The Law Enforcement work culture is unique. Hinkle & Associates identifies with this culture, helping you to set realistic and achievable treatment goals, using practical, efficient and proven techniques.
