A look at officer mental health and community relations
from By Bambi Majumdar
More police officers die by suicide than in the line of duty. In 2017, there were an estimated 140 law enforcement suicides. Law enforcement officers also suffer from more depression, PTSD, burnout, and anxiety than others. A recent national policing conference in Elkhart, Indiana, addressed these serious issues to help officers find a better balance between work and home life. It is vital that departments spread mental health awareness among law enforcement officers, their friends, and families.
