The month of May is a special one for the field of law enforcement. Not only is it Mental Health Awareness Month, but May 12 – 18 is Police Week, a time dedicated to honoring the memory of the law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. During this month, the COPS Office would like to emphasize the importance of law enforcement officers’ mental health in addition to their physical health. The occupational fatality rate for law enforcement is three to five times greater than the national average for the working population. The officers who protect us must also be protected against incapacitating mental and emotional health problems, as well as against the hazards of their job.
