In Harm's Way: Law Enforcement Suicide Prevention There is a brutal truth in law enforcement...that an officer is more likely to be a victim of suicide than a homicide. According to Dr. James Herndon in the FBI’s book, Suicide & Law Enforcement, “Everyday, somewhere in America, a law enforcement officer commits suicide.” More officers die from suicide than from line-of-duty deaths, yet little is being done to address this highly preventable loss.- Donna G. Schulz
In Harm's Way a Law Enforcement Suicide Prevention Toolkit was designed to help you present suicide prevention training within your department, reduce the stigma associated with seeking help, and encourage your officers to roll backup for each other. The toolkit includes "Tactics for Psychological Survival in Law Enforcement."
Additional resources available on the In Harm's way website include: Crises Intervention, Peer Support, Stress Management, News and Publications and more.
