IACP National Symposium on Law Enforcement Officer Suicide and Mental Health: Breaking the Silence on Law Enforcement Suicides

Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), 2014

This report outlines strategies to be used as a roadmap for police departments seeking to include officer mental wellness as a core element of officer safety and wellbeing and to mitigate the threat of officer death by suicide. These strategies are also designed to prevent the destructive effects of emotional trauma, mental illness, and officer deaths by suicide on a police community; to successfully intervene when officers confront mental health crises, mental illness, or suicidal behavior; and, to provide effective event response protocols when an officer dies by suicide in an agency.
