SUICIDE PREVENTION AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL BEING


IN HARM'S WAY

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.
