KYLEAP - Kentucky Law Enforcement Assistance Program
The Kentucky Law Enforcement Assistance Program (KYLEAP) provides the entire spectrum of services from pre-incident training, acute crisis response, and post incident support to law enforcement officers across the Commonwealth. KCCRB recruits, trains and credentials experienced law enforcement professionals to be peer members of the statewide KYLEAP team. The team receives training in providing multi-component critical incident stress management (CISM) interventions and suicide intervention and prevention training.
Purpose: To provide CISM services during the acute phase following a critical incident to prevent the destructive effects of emotional trauma, job related stress, and accelerate recovery from critical incidents before stress reactions negatively impact an officer’s performance, career, health and family.
