Coroner’s Police Suicide Review

Ontario’s police leaders are optimistic that the Ontario Chief Coroner’s recent announcement regarding a review of suicides by police officers will help to effectively support police personnel.  Dr. Dirk Huyer announced that an expert panel will look at this important issue following the suicide of nine police officers in 2018 and in an attempt to identify any trends or commonalities that may have contributed to the unusually high number.

Executive Director Jeff McGuire recently discussed the review with Dr. Huyer and welcomed this proactive approach to an issue that must be addressed by all police stakeholders. As Ontario’s police leaders, we support the review and look forward to the findings and recommendations.
