Suicide and law Enforcement: is Suicide Intervention a Necessary Part of Police Training?
Heinsen D L~~Kinzel T~~Ramsay R
This chapter outlines a comprehensive suicide crisis response model for law enforcement agencies & describes a results-driven suicide intervention training program that has been successfully implemented in a wide range of community organizations, including the Aboriginal Policing Branch of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police & Corrections Services Canada. All police organizations are encouraged to develop policy & training strategies to assist in addressing the general public health problem of suicide. They also are invited to use similar strategies in addressing the occupational risk of police suicides. JA
