Police Suicide: Fighting the Battle of Public Dissent
The alarming increase in officer suicide over the last several years has prompted this training program. This program is an absolute must for officers of all ranks and position. While more help is available than ever before, you must take action and be part of your own well-being. Remember…It is a sign of strength to stand up for your own needs!
Suicide by Cop: A Dangerous Reality
In this training program surrounding the practice of suicide by cop, we will review some facts regarding suicide in general. This may give you a better understanding of the underlying motivation and planning involved in such a critical incident. One thing that all suicide-by-cop individuals have in common is that the person who commits suicide-by-cop has, by definition, gone from being a victim to being a perpetrator. Lastly, we’ll address the officers involved and what we can do to support them post incident.
Suicide Prevention & Emergency Service Providers
The primary focus of this training is the prevention of suicide among first responders. This training will address cultural and environmental barriers to prevention at all levels, including the still-pervasive stigma that discourages at-risk officers from seeking help for fear of negative peer reactions or career ramifications.
