Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a totally confidential program that assists employees and their families in accessing resources and obtaining referral information for problems of a personal or professional nature. 

The EAP Coordinator coordinates the Police Department’s Chaplain’s Program, and is responsible for scheduling their services.  Personnel seek assistance voluntarily or may be referred to the EAP through formal or informal channels.  All contacts with the Chaplain’s Program are confidential. 

The volunteer members of the Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) Team are also coordinated through the Employee Assistance Program.  CISM Team members provide peer support during critical incidents or employee crises.  The Team provides debriefing following a critical incident.  The Team is affiliated with the Tampa Bay Regional Critical Incident Team and the Pinellas Regional CISM Team, which work cooperatively to serve all law enforcement agencies in the Tampa Bay Area.

Employee Assistance Program is responsible for:

  • Providing crisis intervention to employees and their families
  • Advising on issues related to FMLA, ADA, PDA, etc.
  • Researching and developing related programs
  • Developing and maintaining a service provider network
  • Administering the Volunteer Chaplain’s Program
