Report: More Cops Died By Suicide Than In Line Of Duty In 2018
Updated On: Jan 10, 2019

For the third straight year, more officers died by suicide than in the line of duty, WGN 9 reports. According to Blue H.E.L.P., a nonprofit run by active and retired police officers, at least 159 officers took their own lives in 2018, the same number of suicides tracked in 2017 and 19 more than in 2016. Exposure to trauma, horrific accidents and shootings are leading to mental health struggles that often get untreated. The rate of PTSD and depression for police and firefighters is five times higher than the civilian population. A report commissioned by the Ruderman Family Foundation showed that officers’ highest risk of death is by suicide with most deaths in California and Texas. Critics believe the lack of resources or mental health adds to lives being lost.
