Goal Six Accomplishments: Enhance Employee Wellness Program
Implemented an internal department chaplaincy program.
Chaplain visits the department during various times to build relationships with officers and provide support and resources if requested.
Rewrote policy with input from all department members to incorporate a three-prong office wellness approach: Mind, Body, and Spirit
Mind: Contracted with Least Services to provide a yearly mental health checkup for every officer with a certified psychologist. Additionally, officers can meet with one of their psychologists at no cost to the officer to address any other work-related needs throughout the year.
Least Services will also provide services to department personnel in the event of any critical incident.
Body: Officers provided resources to workout, promoting wellness through physical health.
Spirit: The internal chaplain pays informal visits and attends roll calls to be available for our staff on an ongoing basis.
Developed an Early Intervention System (EIS) and added to department policy. The purpose of the EIS is to identify conduct or behavior and provide for a remedy before potential problems arise.
Provided resources and guides for officers and their families in the area of mental health and overall wellness.
