Spike in Police Suicides Raises Concerns for Public Safety
Palatine, IL – Illinois families have been faced with an onslaught of challenges in the last year: Biden’s inflation, rising energy costs, and spiking crime are hurting Illinois families, This week we learned that continued vitriol toward law enforcement has led to depressed morale and a rise in police suicides, raising concerns about public safety as law enforcement is continually villainized.
8th Congressional District Candidate Chris Dargis had this to say about this disturbing report: “Our police officers in Chicago and around the state deserve our respect and our support. These reports of a lack of mental health support due to understaffing are extremely disheartening. Our Police officers are essential to the safety of our community. I am running to be a problem solver and will proudly support legislation to help provide mental health services to law enforcement.”
