Law enforcement agencies should implement comprehensive suicide prevention programs that combine multiple strategies and practices addressing areas such as:
n Leadership and culture
n Access to culturally competent mental health services
n Peer support
n Suicide prevention training and awareness
n Event response
n Family support
n Limiting access to means of suicide
n Safe and effective messaging
Agencies should also develop or enhance their data collection systems, so that the data may be used to guide program planning, determine the effectiveness of suicide prevention efforts, identify lessons learned, and support continuous improvement.
