A Survivor's Guide to Poor Law Enforcement Leadership
by Nicholas Ruggiero View author's profile page

Overview


"Police Mental Barricade" is a raw, unfiltered look into the epidemic of suicides within law enforcement. Last year Blue Help alone reported 228 known suicides within the law enforcement profession. On the other hand, last year 147 officers were killed in the line of duty. We are losing more officers at their own hands than we are on the job. Why?


 The problem stems from poor leadership within the law enforcement profession. This is an epidemic, and "Police Mental Barricade" is the beginning of a search for a cure.
