I strongly believe that police work has become extremely difficult. Our law makers have continued to place more responsibility on the police. Mental illness should not be a law enforcement concern. Instead of addressing mental illness properly with mental health professionals our society sends the police. Then the public is alarmed when a police officer kills someone who gives them no other choice. Our legislature needs to address suicide by cop during the upcoming legislative session.
This website is published as a service to all first responders. Thank You and God Bless.
