Whether it’s with loved ones, officers or other organizations, we’re trying to find ways to support and prevent.
Comfort, it can be a kind word or a small gesture. Immediately after a suicide we offer comfort through an Honor Box; care packages sent to the families and the departments. These boxes are shipped with a personal condolence card from another family who has suffered the same loss. It’s our way of letting them know they are not alone.
Connect with Others
Form lasting relationships with others who have suffered the same loss. Join our virtual support groups or find a family like yours to talk to.
Register for Camp April
In 2021, Blue H.E.L.P. will host the first camps ever for children who have lost a law enforcement officer to suicide. With the help of the Motorola Foundation, we will make sure they have support. Registration to be released January 1, 2021.
This grant is truly ground-breaking; Motorola has taken the lead in support of families who have lost an officer to suicide. Our families have waited a long time for recognition and respect, they are now receiving it. It would be impossible to articulate the significance of this grant.
Police Week Dinner
In 2019, we hosted the first dinner at Police Week to honor the officers we’ve lost to suicide. Blue H.E.L.P. paid the expenses of forty families to attend and will host another dinner in 2021. Please join us as we honor the officers for the way they lived, not the way they died. Registration to be released January 1, 2021.
This is absolutely the most monumental thing I have been a part of, with regard to officer suicide, since I lost my brother to suicide in 2008. I can’t say enough about it.
