The Dark Side of Law Enforcement – LE Suicide

The Dark Side of Law Enforcement – LE Suicide

The Christmas season is a difficult one for law enforcement—it’s not quite the same when you’re working while others are celebrating, and criminal behavior and human suffering don’t take a break for the holidays. Historically, December sees a rise in law enforcement suicides. Keep an eye out for your brothers and sisters who might be in need by recognizing the warning signs, and encourage others to ask for help if they need it. If you or someone you know is exhibiting warning signs, there’s no shame in getting help.

Anyone can be at risk of suicide, so know the signs:

  • Talking about wanting to die or having no reason to live;
  • feelings of being trapped;
  • giving away possessions;
  • mood swings;
  • reckless behavior and more.
