In 2020, 138 Ofﬁcers were killed in the performance of their duties.
However, during the same time frame, 178 Ofﬁcers took their own lives. Statistically, one Officer commits suicide every 49 hours. Now, in 2021, the numbers are currently up a staggering 28% from 2020!
That’s one Ofﬁcer every 52 hours.
As our Law Enforcement Officers perform an ever-increasingly stressful and dangerous job, The Trooper Leon Bench Foundation pledges to provide the assistance and support they desperately need.
