Targeted Audience: -Police Administration & Supervisors, -Government/elected officials -Community partners & leaders Description goals: An investigation into worst-case scenarios and the relationship between trauma and suicide among police officers. This study attempts to answer the following questions: Do police officers who attempt or die by suicide exhibit characteristics that differ from their counterparts who do not attempt or die by suicide? and Can Fitness for Duty (FFD) be helpful in identifying which officers are at most risk for or best protected from suicide? The study concludes by providing possible solutions for developing a suicide risk assessment specific to police. It also discusses potential policy and procedural changes necessary to better protect officers from the residual effects of answering the call of duty. Learning objectives By attending this workshop, leaders should be able to: -Assessing the problem: Police trauma and suicide rates. -Review of the literature: Profile and risk factors in police suicide. -Identifying risk factors: Worst case scenario (a case study). -Assessment and prevention: Analysis of FFD evaluations. -Conclusions: Proposed model of a suicide risk assessment specific to police officers.
