Police Suicides Are Up, Retired Cop Says ‘Ferguson Effect’ Is Partly To Blame

Police suicides are up nationwide and the numbers are staggering. Retired police officer and forensic criminologist Dr. Ron Martinelli says the ‘Ferguson effect’ is partly to blame.  

At least 160 police officer took their own lives in 2018, that's more than the number of officers who died while on the job, according to Blue H.E.L.P.  

"Not only do they have to worry about losing their lives or getting injured while in the line of duty, but they have to worry if they’re going to lose their job or get sued," said Martinelli.
