About The Foundation
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. In 2021, the numbers are currently up a staggering 28% from 2020!
As law enforcement officers perform an ever-increasing stressful and dangerous job, The Trooper Leon Bench Foundation pledges to find ways to provide them the assistance and support they desperately need.
