To be perfectly honest I'm surprised they're not requesting and even demanding it in some places. There's also probably good reason to believe more suicides amongst police could be reduced by introducing a greater psychiatric element to policing.  I have a nephew in the RCMP and a son with schizophrenia, we've had this discussion amongst ourselves and my nephew thought having the 'cop talk' with our son was a reasonable thing to do given the numbers of schizophrenics that have been injured and killed in encounters with police.

I agree but asking for help doesn't come naturally in a cops don't cry culture that has existed since forever and is hard to change.
