Suicide among police officers is a dramatic example of what can happen when those entrusted with the protection of others fail to protect and care for themselves. This program, produced by the New York City Police Foundation, focuses on the underlying problems-alcohol or drug abuse, severe relationship problems, difficulty in dealing with violence-that can, if unchecked and unresolved, lead to suicide. Police officers, trained to appear invulnerable and in control, are less likely to admit they need help, and are therefore at greater risk of suicide. This very moving program provides a forum for understanding and perhaps ameliorating the pressures that lead to suicide for those in positions of control.
