Who We Help
No matter where you are in the country—whether in New York or a small town in Nebraska—Hurt Cop provides the resources first responders may need to help them find assistance for anything that may be troubling them.
I went to Brooklyn in October to attend a twice-a-year training program of POPPA (Police Organization Providing Peer Assistance). I’ve been involved with POPPA since 2009 and completed a 38-hour class to be a Peer Support Officer.
