Representatives from DynCorp International’s Employee Assistance Program recently traveled to Haiti to visit with Company personnel who are supporting the U.S. Civilian Police (CIVPOL) contract with the U.S. State Department’s Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) as part of the Haiti Stabilization Initiative.
Under the Haiti Stabilization Initiative task order, DI law enforcement professionals conduct specialized training for Haitian law enforcement officers, including a special Civil Disturbance Response Unit deployed to the Cité Soleil section of Port-au-Prince. DI provides vehicles, communication equipment, and other support for more than 400 Haitian National Police (HNP).
Stephanie Gaffney, Employee Assistance Program Manager at DynCorp International, met with the team in Haiti and encouraged them to take advantage of the Employee Assistance Program and its benefits. The DI Care Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to support DI personnel in the United States and around the world – and their families. The team provides special assistance in a range of circumstances – from an employee injury to the tragic event of a fatality. EAP staff travel around the world anywhere they are needed to support DI personnel and their families, and educate them about the support that is available through DI.
Gaffney commented on her trip to Haiti, “Every time we have the opportunity to visit one of DI’s programs, it underscores the importance of the DI Care EAP. Our people are making a difference in communities around the world – I saw firsthand the positive changes in that are occurring in Haiti. Their dedication to making a difference reminds us of our responsibility to provide them with the support they need through our employee assistance programs.”
