Overview

This is a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) Suicide Prevention in Police Lockups online training course offered for Texas Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

Suicide is often the single most common cause of death in police lockups, and when it occurs, responsible officers are often shocked and surprised. In many police departments with holding cells or city detention facilities, officers have received little or no training in how to supervise and monitor detainees. Making matters worse, detainees are often held in cells or detention areas that do not meet state detention standards or even local health and safety codes. What's more, those that are designated to watch detainees are often a multi-tasking desk sergeant, or an injured officer, that … checks on detainees every now and then or when they call me. This course provides officers with an awareness of the serious, life threatening, and career damaging  threat posed by suicidal individuals while being temporarily detained in your lockup. It discusses how to recognize the signs of pending suicide, and actions you can take to manage the threat, save lives, and reduce your personal and agency liability.

Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive two (2) hours of course credit.
