With this article, CopBlue continues with our series of video articles. They are published regularly and address a variety of issues which are important to the Street Cops of America.

This week, Chief Daniel Watson (ret) talks about that tough subject we would all like to avoid:  Officer Suicide. He shares his own struggles with carrying the weight of an untold number of horrific scenes and events over the course of his career.

“Most everyone has had a very, very dark time in their life when they considered doing some serious and stupid things …” Dan shares from his own background.  How do we reach them?  What do we do or say that may pull them back from the edge?

Please take a moment and listen to Dan’s message as it comes from the heart of one of America’s finest.




“Above all, it’s about going home at the end of the shift … “

We couldn’t agree more.
