The transit officer was the seventh city cop to take his life this year a staggering number that has led the department to retool its suicide prevention procedures.

If they are offing themselves because they can't handle the job....then it seems to me that maybe they shouldn't have ever taken it. js

More than likely it is domestic for most of them. However, the number is high enough to at least suspect there is something else bumping up the average.

How many families lives have these people ruined?

They chose to sell their soul to the company store.

Officer Fatally Shoots Self In 8th NYPD Suicide This Year
AUGUST 13, 2019
NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A 35-year-old police officer took his own life early Tuesday morning, marking the eighth NYPD suicide this year and the sixth since June.

The seven-year veteran of the force was off-duty when he shot himself in the head in his Yonkers home at 3:30 a.m.

Reports indicate the officer left a note and his fiancee was home at the time.

The officer's name has not been released.

NYPD Chief of Department Terrence Monahan tells WNYC they are taking this seriously.

"We look at this is there a contagion, this is something that psychologists and psychiatrists talk about when one happens, that there may be more," he said. "We had averaged four to five suicides over the last few years, currently this year we have eight suicides. That is a very large number."

Monahan said the NYPD is looking for any commonality.

It's always tragic when an Officer dies.

So very, very sad.

Just heart-breaking.

Perhaps they should do wellness checks on each other. That should help prevent suicides :up:

Some Blue Flag laws?

A quick search found a 17 / 100,000 police suicide statistic. With NYPD having over 36,000 officers, 6 or 7 suicides is in the statistical range.
Yes it's high, according to the CDC it appears to be the 6th highest suicide job.


What jobs are worse for suicide?

Construction and Extraction
Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports, and Media
Installation, Maintenance, and Repair
Transportation and Material Moving
Production

That's horrible. I don't have words to express the sadness I feel right now.
