An alarming new report found suicides have been on the rise among America’s finest amid far-left incitement of anti-police sentiment. According to police non-profit Blue H.E.L.P., at least 174 officers died by suicide last year.
The report found a police officer was more likely to take their own life than die in the line of duty. This comes as violent attacks on the police as well as shootings of officers have also been on the rise.
“To compound matters, the suicide rate for men who work in law enforcement and corrections is twice that of civilian men. Let that sink in for a minute.”

Blue H.E.L.P. has urged police officers across the nation to reach out and share their concerns. The non-profit added there was always a solution to any problems in life.
“All my brother and sister police officers all over this nation know if they call me, no matter what time of day or night or where they are, I will hear every word they say,” expressed Edwin C. Roessler, former Fairfax County chief of police. “I will get them the help they need. I will listen.”
Meanwhile, hundreds of police officers are retiring or relocating away from Democrat-run areas due to worsening work environments.
