Law Enforcement Mental Health Certificate (LeMC)

LeMC is a college certificate program for law enforcement officers to earn credits and an applied mental health certificate in a rigorous, law enforcement-only group.


Short Term Objective

A more educated workforce. An opportunity for law enforcement officers to earn college credits and a certificate in mental health through a rigorous curriculum built to enhance their experiential knowledge and more thoroughly prepare them to handle the complex mental health issues they encounter at work.

Long Term Objective

A healthier workforce. Start the pipeline for Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs), both current and retired, to earn the degrees necessary to become licensed mental health professionals, thereby creating more opportunities for LEOs to receive mental health counseling from a therapist with law enforcement experience.
