About Us

About this site


This site is dedicated to the men and women of law enforcement who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve.  We have all been trained on how to deal with the problems of others and to handle the worst people in society, but we receive very little to no training  on how to handle our own problems and to deal with the changes in our lives caused by the law enforcement career.  I have been to the edge and thought that there was no one who understood and that there was no way out but to end it all.  Thankfully a friend appeared in time to stop me from doing the unthinkable.  As Police Officers, we live our lives and say that it will never happen to us.  I am here to tell you, that no matter who you are it can happen.  Without awareness training and education, it is much easier than one may think, and you don’t even see it coming.  Police Suicides and Stress related issues are things we “DON’T TALK ABOUT”.  It’s Time We Start.

Suicide, Depression, Work Related Stress, Divorce, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse/Neglect, Police Ethics, Changes Caused By The Law Enforcement Career.

Translation to English would be "No-one messes with me and gets away with it". Similarly, in Scots this is usually rendered as "Wha daur meddle wi' me? ", which more literally means "Who dares meddle with me?"
