An interview with a source who preferred to remain anonymous, this guest post about PTSD related police suicide applies to the general population, too….
On a REPORTED death, only about 22 states ask the employment of the individual weather it is a natural death or classified as a suicide. Looking at police Suicides this is at the low end; two police officers commit suicide every 17 hours, this is active, retired or the officer is up on chargers, some departments will not report it as a suicide because when a person commits suicide the insurance company will not pay the family INSURANCE BENEFITS and in most cases no other benefits go to the family so the department will cover it up as a ACCIDENTAL shooting.
