    Suicide. Terrible for the victim, and worse for the family, and friends left behind. It is not a good solution. Prayer for those whom he left behind.

    Please keep on top of this and don't assume it is a suicide until it has determined beyond the reasonable shadow of a doubt.

    Many of us are still waiting for resolution about Sergeant Sean Drenth of the Phoenix, AZ PD.

    FWIW they have released the basic following chain of events:

    -Officer goes on duty.
    -Officer sends text message to his brother. Contents of message not released.
    -Within 15 minutes of sending the text message, the dispatch center dispatches another officer to the location where the officer died.

    The department has all but said that it was suicide, and the text message certainly supports that.

    We've got to do a better job of screening these people out before hiring.

    The "problem" has always been with us to some extent, but seems much more prevalent now.

    Screening them out how? What tools do we have to detect that a person, after seeing years of tragedy or experiencing whatever personal life issues, will eventually take their life?

    Perhaps, a more complete psychological evaluation before the hiring process begins.

    Perhaps, relieving an officer of duty when he displays symptoms of being self destructive.

    Perhaps, allowing those he works with to anonymously submit names for extra scrutiny.

    We might not like these ideas, but there are things we can do.
