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- Police 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.
