On the Jersey Beat Radio Show: Cop2Cop hotline with Director Cherie Castellano: 1-866-Cop2Cop.

Cop 2 Cop is the first program of its kind in the country, enacted into law to focus on suicide prevention and mental health support for law enforcement officers. After a series of police suicides (1996-1998), community leaders in New Jersey believed that law enforcement professionals needed a confidential, safe outlet where they could talk to peers who could understand, offer support and not be judgmental.

The Cop 2 Cop hotline, 1-866-COP-2-COP, is staffed by retired officers who are licensed Clinical Social Workers, known as Cop Clinicians, and specially trained Mental Health professionals, along with volunteer retired officers who are trained as peer supporters.
