Director Statement

My late husband, Sgt. Brett Doolittle of the Kansas City, Kansas police department, died by suicide in 2015.
Suicide is different. There are a growing number of widows of police suicides that are blamed, shunned and denied support by their late husband’s police departments. Also, police suicides outnumber line of duty deaths each year. My hope is to help restore the credibility of police departments who have deeply hurt and caused unnecessary pain towards the families and promote forward thinking on suicide awareness.
