Janice McCarthy, Member, is our leading spokesperson for the rights and needs of survivors of law enforcement suicide. She is an active speaker and lecturer, speaking nationally for the Badge of Life on police suicide issues. Janice knows the pain of police suicide, having lost her husband, Paul, a Massachusetts State Trooper, to PTSD and suicide that were the direct result of law enforcement trauma. She is a voice of courage that speaks out against the stigma, shunning and disgrace faced by police suicide survivors. Janice carries her message to all that will listen. With us, she is determined to see justice done for those officers whose deaths from suicide were the result of the stress and trauma in police work. Janice carries a message of hope to officers and their families–that there are “better ways” through the message of Badge of Life and its free training programs.
