Police Officer Suicide: Civic Reflection at the Chicago School

The Chicago School’s Director of Community Partnerships, Jill Glenn, along with Bockarie Lansana, led a Civic Reflection discussion on the Chicago campus on March 20, 2013.  This civic reflection focused on an article discussed by Larry Cohen during this year’s Cultural Impact Conference, and it is an important and relevant topic in today’s society, especially here in the greater Chicago area.  With the suicides of police officers on the rise, we must start to look at ways to help them cope with job pressures, personal troubles, and the like, in hopes of preventing officer suicide from becoming more of a “trend.”
