South Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program
Serving law enforcement employees and their families statewide.


The South Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program (SCLEAP) was born out of the actual needs of state police officers serving in the field as well as non-sworn administrative staff members and their families. Modeled on a concept currently used by the FBI, SCLEAP is an employee assistance program which provides services as well as maintaining a cadre of volunteer chaplains across the state. The staff and volunteers are on-call 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, in order to better serve the needs of all South Carolina law enforcement employees.

A Unique Partnership

The SCLEAP is a unique partnership between SLED, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, South Carolina Department of Public Safety, and the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon. It serves more than 17,000 state and local officers as well as non-sworn employees and all family members. Each agency has an equal claim on the energy and resources of professional staff.
