Lakewood Church shooting officers to receive mental health support

Houston law enforcement leaders are taking steps to ensure that the officers involved in the Lakewood Church shooting receive mental health care. This comes after a gunman opened fire in the church’s lobby, leading to a shootout between the suspect and law enforcement.

The Houston Police Officers’ Union has stated that they will offer support and resources to their officer involved in the shooting, as well as responding officers. They will have access to peer support teams from both the department and union, as well as any necessary psychological treatment. The union has also reached out to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to offer mental health resources to their officer involved in the shooting.

Both officers have been placed on administrative leave while an investigation is ongoing. It is crucial that they receive the support and care they need during this time, including mental health resources and support for their emotional well-being. Providing mental health care for law enforcement officers involved in traumatic and high-stress situations like this is essential for ensuring their long-term safety and well-being.
