Mission

POPPA (Police Organization Providing Peer Assistance) is a volunteer police support network committed exclusively to providing a confidential, safe and supportive environment for police officers and retirees. Operating 24 hours a day every day of the year, POPPA assists officers in coping effectively with stress related to personal life stressors and stress related to the law enforcement profession.

We are dedicated to preventing and reducing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), marital problems, substance abuse and suicide.

Utilizing peers and a professional mental health network, POPPA reduces the gap between essential support services and officers’ access to these services.
