Tip: Resources to help prevent police officer suicide
Have you seen a fellow officer who suddenly begins taking unnecessary risks on and off duty? Have you observed a shift in attitude and/or demeanor, like a change from motivated and professional to apathetic and flippant? If so, you may have an opportunity to save a life, because those are among the behaviors commonly seen in an individual contemplating suicide. More cops commit suicide than are feloniously killed in the line of duty — depending on whose data you site, somewhere between 125 and 150 officers reportedly kill themselves annually. Even one officer taking his or her own life is too many.
