As of October 1, 2016, the State of South Carolina has provided all Sworn Law Enforcement Officers, Volunteer and Career Firefighters, and Emergency Medical Responders funds to help those suffering from stress related incident-based behavioral health issues.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program has developed a 12 minute video which details the program. It is entitled “Overview of Program.” The video begins with an interview with Robert Stewart, former Chief of SLED and is followed by an interview with Jim Stout and Zorrina Harmon representing the Provident Insurance Company. The second video is a 12 minute clip with four Captains. (Lexington SO, Columbia, PD, SCHP and USC Law Enforcement and Safety)

The interview will provide a brief overview of the new mental health benefit available to sworn police officers in South Carolina.
