Behavioral Science Services

We’re Here to Serve Your Needs

Behavioral Science Services (BSS) is a group of highly skilled psychologists, alcohol and drug addiction counselors and nutritionist/dietitian. We know how to effectively address a wide range of individual and family problems and we understand how law enforcement culture may sometimes impact these issues. All APD employees (traffic, security & patrol) and their spouses or significant others are eligible for BSS services, which are free of charge. We do not provide services to children. However, we often help parents address issues they and their children may be challenged by.

Confidentiality

Your communications with a BSS psychologist are protected by law. In brief, anything you tell your psychologist cannot be repeated without your express written authorization. Psychologists are mandated reporters which means that they must report suspicion of child or elder abuse. For a full understanding of confidentiality, click here.
