As researchers, clinicians, and police practitioners, we seem to be stuck in a quandary of what leads a police offcer to this fnal life decision and what we can possibly do about reducing the occurrences of this tragedy. This chapter is prefaced on the notion that if we review what we know about the roots of police suicide research and, using this information, move to the exploration of etiology, perhaps we can possibly do something about it. Unfortunately, as it now stands, we do not have all of the answers for prevention. Hopefully this chapter may in some small way point us in an appropriate direction.
