Law Enforcement

Police officers can contribute to suicide prevention in many ways. They can help individuals at risk for suicide stay safe and obtain the help they need, and can also provide support to survivors at the scene of a suicide. Law enforcement agencies also have a role to play in assisting officers themselves, as the trauma and stress of responding to crises could increase suicide risk in this population.
