Record LEO Suicide Rate and PTSD

The Georgia Division of the Southern States PBA, Inc. and the Police Benevolent Foundation, Inc. have partnered with In Harm’s Way and the Mississippi L.E.A.P.S. programs to educate law enforcement administrators, law enforcement officers and their family members about the hidden dangers of PTSD and its connection to the high rate of law enforcement suicide.

On Monday, January 27th, the Police Benevolent Foundation, Inc. is conducting an informational seminar about PTSD and law enforcement suicide. This event will be held at The Foundation Club in Augusta, GA in cooperation with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

This seminar is absolutely free, and it is extremely valuable in its potential for saving lives, careers and most importantly – saving families.  

This event is being made possible thanks to the PBA of Georgia and the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office along with our corporate sponsors, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and Executive Marketing Services, Inc. 

Approximately 125 students are scheduled to attend.  RCSO Chief Deputy Patrick Clayton will give the opening remarks at 8am.
