OUR COMMITMENT TO HELPING FAMILIES OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IN TRAGEDY

Tragically, law enforcement officers have a 54% increase in suicide risk when compared to the civilian population (McAward, 2022). The risk is greatest within smaller agencies which lack resources and extensive support networks to help officers in need. SCU Services is dedicated to supporting resources which help the guardians of our society deal with the significant and multiple stressors of a very difficult job. However, if a suicide tragedy should strike a brother or sister in blue, SCU Services is committed to ensuring that no family bears the cost of cleaning up a law enforcement suicide tragedy*.

HOW WE HELP LAW ENFORCEMENT FAMILIES

SCU Services is committed to ensuring no family bears the cost of cleaning up a law enforcement suicide tragedy. Law Enforcement agency administrators should contact SCU Services to provide cleanup of suicide tragedies of law enforcement, corrections and emergency telecommunicator personnel.

SCU Services will pay for the insurance deductible of the claim filed for human biological remediation. If insurance is unavailable to pay for remediation of the tragedy, SCU Services will provide the remediation at no cost to the family.

Services are available to federal, state and local agencies in Ohio and Kentucky and Indiana who have a valid Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) and the sworn law enforcement, corrections and telecommunicator personnel of those agencies.
