Highlighting the Dark Side of Retiring from Law Enforcement

Featuring Rich Milliman and Amanda Coleman

Death by suicide is a growing issue for police officers not just in active duty, but also in retirement. In fact, since 2016, BLUE H.E.L.P. reported 807 occurrences documented where a police officer took their own life. Extra Duty Solutions’ C.E.O., Rich Milliman, and Founder of Irish Angel, Amanda Coleman, teamed up to share real dialogue about the challenges law enforcement professionals face when it comes to planning for retirement and finding purpose in post-law enforcement life.

Additional Topics Include:

  • Transitioning to a new life stage and how it affects the psyche of former law enforcement professionals
  • Dealing with a sense of loss after retirement
  • Combating the stigma surrounding mental health in the public safety world
  • The importance of speaking to peers who have successfully transitioned to a happy and healthy retirement
