Law enforcement is an emotionally draining and physically dangerous job. The job requires officers to work long hours, rotating shifts, and the constant exposure to tragic events, may extract a heavy toll on both the law enforcement officer and their families. As a result, law enforcement officers often suffer from alcoholism, divorce, domestic violence, heart attacks, cancer, depression, and suicide at an alarming rate, with suicide being the number one cause of death for law enforcement officers.
