This program guide explains the mission of, offerings by, and resources available through the National Suicide Awareness for Law Enforcement Officers (SAFLEO) program.
The National Suicide Awareness for Law Enforcement Officers (SAFLEO) Program is a suicide prevention and awareness program focusing on occupational risks and support for law enforcement agencies, colleagues, families, and friends. Agencies must give officer wellness the same level of attention as tactical training. But this is more than just an agency responsibility. The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) believes that the law enforcement community deserves better access to officer wellness resources and suicide prevention strategies. The SAFLEO Program addresses law enforcement suicide prevention strategies through providing training, technical assistance, and resources to law enforcement agencies, staff, and families.
