Dear Member,

A suicide-by-cop incident – where a subject deliberately provokes police into killing him – can happen to any cop, at any time, on any shift. While officers make every effort to end such calls nonviolently, sometimes the suicidal subject will not allow that outcome. This edition of P1 Training eNews – a partnership between PoliceOne and PoliceTraining.net – reviews how officers can prepare to respond to such calls. The Force Science Institute details key factors for police de-escalation of potential suicides, Calibre Press lists 15 warning signs that you might be involved in a suicide by cop incident, and NTOA’s David Pearson presents seven questions cops should consider at such calls.

In his Roll Call: Reality Training video, Dave Smith presents footage of an attempted suicide by cop that highlights the importance of cover in allowing officers more time to decide how to handle a critical incident.
