Every year, we lose more officers to suicide than to on-duty traffic accidents and assaults. September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance's (BJA's) VALOR Program is promoting suicide prevention awareness alongside organizations and individuals from around the world.

During this webinar, Captain Brandon Post (retired), Chief David Perry (retired), and Normal, Illinois, Police Department Chief Steve Petrilli will discuss the National Suicide Awareness for Law Enforcement Officers (SAFLEO) Program, a BJA-funded program that offers trainings and resources to help officers live healthy lives.

Join this webinar to learn how we can all work together to reduce law enforcement suicides and promote healing and hope.
