Blue H.E.L.P. - Honoring the Service of Law Enforcement Officers Who Died by Suicide
We believe that officers who suffer emotional injuries should be recognized and their service to the community honored.
We believe it’s time to put names and faces to the men and women who have died because their emotional injuries became too much to bear.
We believe it’s time to support the families who have lost loved ones to those injuries.
We believe in the saying, “It is not how they died that mattered, it is how they lived”.
