Resiliency Support Program

Once again POPPA’s distinguished services have opened many of the NYPD’s doors to offer support to our officers of all ranks. The Resiliency Support Program has primarily been facilitated at the different ranges located throughout New York City. During the presentation a brief overview of POPPA is given, along with printed materials and our easy to carry phone cards with the toll free POPPA hotline number. This program gives the officer in the field easy to remember tools to check the level of stress and resiliency over the last six months. During the outreach, a small group is conducted by two PSOs and a clinician. Often the officers have commented about how educational it has been to learn about hidden levels of stress, PTSD and remaining resilient.
