First responder suicides are at a rate that is higher than their line of duty deaths. Thirty-one officers have already taken their own lives since the first of the year. Our veterans are taking their lives at a rate of twenty a day. Can you imagine being one of those mothers or fathers, sons or daughters, husbands or wives that wake up each day without their loved one?

Our community is in a crisis and it is time to act now to prevent these senseless deaths. No more being reactive! It is time to be proactive!
