Peer Support :

In this program, established Sheriff’s Office employees act as peer support advisors to our employees to help them deal with personal and professional problems.

Peer support-based interventions are designed to help employees and their families cope with a range of life circumstances. The rationale for the program is that people who share common conditions or experiences can cope more effectively by discussing their experiences, sharing practical information and resources, and offering moral support.

Among other things, the peer support program holds presentations for new employees and their families and talks to them about the stressors in law enforcement.

Wellness Program :

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office offers a robust wellness program that focuses on the mental, physical, social and spiritual wellness of their employees and their families.  Some of the services provided are psychological resources, neurofeedback, massage therapist, acupuncturist, weekend marriage retreats, personal finance classes and more.

If you’d like to learn more about either program please contact Dan Brite, Health & Wellness Coordinator at
