Police Suicide

Officer Louis Enrique Martinez of the Chicago Police Department has a Master of Arts Degree and is the 1st Vice President of the Illinois Academy of Criminology as well as a member of the editorial board of The Journal of Police Crisis Negotiations. Louis Enrique Martinez is the author of The Secret Deaths: Patrol Officer’s Testimonial Views on Police Suicides and Why Suicides Continues to be Hidden in Police Departments.

According to the book description of The Secret Deaths: Patrol Officer’s Testimonial Views on Police Suicides and Why Suicides Continues to be Hidden in Police Departments, “This book is about the police culture and how it affects officers when they are faced with personal issues. It’s about the topic of suicide and the police. It is about how the public sees and feels about suicide and let me tell you it is totally different on how police officers see it when one of their own takes their life. It’s about how police departments across the country stigmatize police suicides and refuse to accept it for what it really is. Suicide is a tragedy, and it is an illness.”
