Either we stand by our brothers and sisters in blue or we will soon be standing alone in times of crises.

Dr. John Violanti analyzed suicide data between 1999-2013 (present data availability) and came up with a verifiable statistic from a Centers for Disease Control database - Law Enforcement Officers have a 54% higher probability for suicide than does the general U.S. working population - based on a sample of 5 million U.S. workers. 

First Responders LOVE their families just like you do.....the only difference is.....they leave their families to protect yours, says Sgt Mike McGrew. There are tens of thousands of great, heroic acts that first responders do every day. To go out there and do a tough job and still have that kind of pressure on you is bringing a lot more issues to the first responders that are out there...especially the police officers.

As White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany stated, the recent attacks on police officers are a result of the 'defund the police' movement - which she called “a poisonous ideology.”  Attacking law enforcement is “an assault” against the community, “an assault against law and order,” and “antithetical to what we value as Americans.”

Are we waiting for our political leaders to do something to support our First Responders or will we as fellow American's step up?

Let's support our First Responders.

Across the country our Law Enforcement Officers  are suffering from alcoholism, divorce, and suicide and allowing this travesty to go on is inhumane.

The attacks on police must end. This country must stand up and be loud. Those who believe in a nation of law and order can be silent no more. You need to contact your local and national leaders every day. We need to demand that they support their law enforcement and allow police to do their job. -  Tom Homan, LA County Sheriff

911 At Ease International is here to help. We provide First Responders access to free and confidential trauma informed counseling. We firmly believe that maintaining  anonymity and confidentiality is essential. If you know of a First Responder in crisis, help us let them know we are here to help.

From his 31-year career as a police officer and sergeant, co-founder and executive director Sgt. Mike McGrew knows first hand the dramatic impact of working the front lines as a first responder. He faced his own struggles with Post-Traumatic Stress Injuries and other self-destructive behaviors, after years of dealing with the gruesome and inhuman crimes he encountered while working as a police officer. He also experienced the unbearable pain of losing a child to cancer. Through Sgt. McGrew’s own personal and spiritual journey  of discovering healing from post-traumatic stress injuries, he co-founded 911 At Ease International.

Sgt. McGrew published his personal story in A Higher Call to Duty.
