A survey conducted through Interpol on suicide in police officers enabled polic officer suicide rates to be calculated for 26 countries for the period 1980-1989. Overall, the suicide rate for police officers was not found to be consistently higher (or lower) than the suicide rate for men in general in the countries reporting data. However,it was found that fewer countries monitored suicide in their police officers than monitored the death of police officers from homicide. (8 refs)
