Get the police out of the daily stress of their job

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – A Cayce police officer killed in the line of duty will be laid to rest today. Some of his fellow officers were with him when he lost his life. In Kershaw County this morning, deputies saw a man commit suicide right in front of them. And yesterday, the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office announced the death of one of its young deputies who died of cancer.

What resources are available to help law enforcement through these situations?

The Haven is now open in the Midlands. The 32-acre facility is a place where the men and women of law enforcement can find rest, peace and a supportive community that will help them deal with the stresses and demands of their profession.

Allison Miller and Bart McEntire are with The Haven. Allison is the Public Information Officer and Bart is the Fundraising Manager. They appeared on WIS TV Midday to talk about The Haven’s mission to save, restore and rebuild lives, relationships and communities.

The founders of The Haven are Kevin and Ryanne Caldwell, both in law enforcement themselves. They felt called to create this safe space to serve law enforcement across the state.
