Boots On The Ground was started by Dave McLennan, a dedicated Police Officer who, on the verge of retirement, felt called to continue to serve his community in a new way. He had become passionate about the impact that exposure to trauma was having on police officers and other First Responders and he believed that he could bring together a group of dedicated volunteers to help make a difference.
Dave was first able to engage a group of dedicated retired and serving police officers, who worked together for over two years, to establish the confidential peer support program. Boots On The Ground continues to grow and now supports all First Responders including police officers, firefighters, paramedics, nurses, corrections officers, military, veterans, and emergency dispatch operators. Civilian members of the above organizations can also utilize these services. We do not turn any callers away from our helpline.
Our Mission is to provide anonymous, confidential, caring and compassionate peer support to First Responders across the Province of Ontario.
