New Arizona Law Makes Counseling Available for First Responders
A new law passed during this year’s legislative session requires the state and its cities and towns to provide first-responders access to licensed counseling services, under certain circumstances.
Those include if they’ve been subjected to the use of deadly force, witnessed the death of a colleague, or responded to a dangerous crime against a child.
Arizona joins the list of states passing these kinds of laws.
Nancy Bohl-Penrod is the director of The Counselling Team International, which provides services to first responders and public safety personnel around the country.
