Video Evaluation Overview

The Carson J Spencer Foundation is conducting an exploratory survey to get a better sense of law enforcement's thoughts and opinions about the "Breaking the Silence: Suicide Prevention in Law Enforcement" video and to give us some ideas about what might be useful in a facilitation guide.

We appreciate the time you are donating to help us improve and expand this resource. Your answers will help others who may be experiencing isolation and despair. Thank you. All responses will be held in complete confidence and in no way will the researchers be able to tie answers back to individuals participating in the survey.

This video was developed by the Carson J Spencer Foundation in partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Kenosha Police Department, Denver Police Department, the American Association of Suicidology, and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention.

This evaluation is optional and will help give us a better sense of how to best support officers affected by suicidal thoughts and behavior. The survey was developed by the Carson J Spencer Foundation, and anonymous and confidential data will be held in the CJSF survey monkey account. The survey should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes to complete and you can opt out of the survey at any time. There is no compensation available for the completion of the survey, but we appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your experiences.

If you find that the experience of taking this survey is distressing we encourage you to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 or visit for additional resources for support.
