"Police Officer takes her own life." This saddens me to read, but I'm not surprised. Both external AND internal stress can lead to severe PTSD. Am glad I got out when I did (after three years of service). I have respect for our police (now), but back then, it wasn't what it should've been (improvements have been made since then). There were some very nasty/corrupt cops who shouldn't have made it into the academy, let alone the force; they were a disgrace to everything our uniforms stood for.
