Message from the Peer Support Program

Everyone, the Peer Support Program is a very useful resource for anyone who may ever need their assistance. I reached out to Lt. Todd Hill  and asked him to pass along a little info to remind our members what they are tasked with and how they can help. If anyone ever needs to reach out to the Peer Support Program, they can be contacted from our website or smartphone app.

This is is from Lt. Hill

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Peer Support Program (PSP) is dedicated to assist agency personnel with Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) services, specifically confidential peer support assistance. Recognizing that while performing daily first responder duties, agency personnel become involved in and are exposed to incidents that have the potential to cause various forms of short and/or long-term emotional trauma. The PSP is designed to help in following areas: peer support during times of personal and/or professional stress, early intervention to help mitigate the impacts of stress, referral to program services, and education-based training.

Michigan CISM Laws (MCL 333.20981, 333.20982, and 333.20983) provides Peer Support Program Team Members with the ability to speak to agency employees in a confidential and privileged manner – see OCSO Policy and Procedure 326 for more information.

Agency personnel can initiate services themselves or refer others to a PSP Team Member in a confidential manner by emailing the confidential email, contacting Lt Todd Hill directly, or contacting any of the PSP Team Members.

If You’re Still Concerned About Child Care

Some information has been passed along to us from Monica Van Sumer at Kinder Care Learning Centers.

If anyone is still having trouble trying to lock down child care, some information from Monica is attached. They still have “Essential Centers” open from Southgate to Lapeer and Novi to Troy.

PASSWORD PROBLEM

OK, so we finally got an answer as to why you might not receive the 2nd email to set your password.

Due to some companies security breaches, they have really locked down their respective settings.

Without identifying those service providers, if you or anyone you know HAS NOT received the email for setting your password….PLEASE DO NOT hesitate to reach out to Chevy or I to get that taken care of for you! Click the name below.
