Tragic is not an adequate word to describe a suicide. Yet, it happens. Loved ones are left asking unanswerable questions, wounded in a way that no one who has not experienced this kind of loss can comprehend.

Does law enforcement experience higher than average rates of suicide? I don’t know. I do recall a study somewhere that showed more law enforcement officers take their own lives annually than are killed by bad guys.

There are no pat answers, and I know nothing about this particular victim. Let’s just hope law enforcement in general does not turn back the clock to the days of stigmatizing an officer who has the courage to ask for help when it is needed.
