Chris Corbett RIPCorbett Corbett

When a police officer dies by suicide, there are no words.  A need to attribute causality that can never be fully satisfied.  An understanding that may never come.  Wondering… What did I miss?  What should I have seen?

A Study of Police Suicide: 2008-2012.

  1. Average age: 42
  2. Average years on the job: 16
  3. Gender/Race: 91% white male
  4. Marital Status: 61% single
  5. Prior Notice: 64% a surprise event
  6. Method: 90% Gunshot

“Requiescat in pace” Deputy Chief Corbett.  May you help those in need by guiding them to seek peer support.
