Law Enforcement Advocacy

One of the newest non-profit organizations helping Law Enforcement Officers and their Families is THE WOUNDED BLUE.

If you're a Law Enforcement Officer who has sustained a permanent line-of-duty injury and are not receiving the help of your Department, please contact THE WOUNDED BLUE at 725-222-3967. If you're a Law Enforcement Officer, either active-duty or retired, or the Family member of either, and you feel you need help to talk about any subject weighing on you, please contact THEWOUNDEDBLUE.ORG, where your call will remain anonymous. Peer Counselors are available 24/7/365 days a year. All calls are also free-of-charge.

It is estimated that between 30 and 35% of all Law Enforcement Officers in this country suffer from some degree of PTSD. With approximately 900,000 active-duty Officers in the United States, it's not difficult to discern the issue of PTSD is one from which no Officer should be forced to suffer in silence. These numbers do not take into account our retired Law Enforcement community which may be suffering, too. It is extremely important for you to know that help is available 24/7/365 via a trained Peer Counselor at THE WOUNDED BLUE. It's also important to repeat that these services are all free-of-charge to our active duty and retired Officers, and the Family members of both.

Also, please see the award-winning Documentary THE WOUNDED BLUE, streaming on Amazon Prime, Microsoft Store,  iTunes, and Google Play. It's just a couple of bucks to rent the Film, with all proceeds going to these programs offered by THE WOUNDED BLUE.

In addition, please subscribe to Wounded Blue TV on YouTube by visiting YouTube.com and entering Wounded Blue TV in their search bar. You'll see a rectangular box in bright red which says SUBSCRIBE. Click on that so you can receive notifications about the new series VOICES OF THE BLUE, beginning on May 1, 2020, a 6-part series about individual Officers and some of the worst line-of-duty experiences which may be relatable if you're a Law Enforcement Officer. Wounded Blue TV is free, as is all programming it will be airing, beginning, again, with VOICES OF THE BLUE on May 1, 2020. The emphasis on THE WOUNDED BLUE is that if you are an active-duty or retired Law Enforcement Officer, you are NEVER FORGOTTEN and NEVER ALONE.
