WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) released the following statement after the Law Enforcement Suicide Data Collection Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I’m honored to have a Father as a former Sheriff and a brother who still serves as a Deputy Sheriff. Those who put on the uniform every day to protect and serve our communities deserve our support and assistance when they need it most. This data collection will give us insight into the mental health of officers so we can best serve them and save lives.”
This legislation requires the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to provide information on suicide rates in law enforcement. The Law Enforcement Suicide Data Collection Act passed the Senate on May 14th. This legislation will be sent to President Trump to be signed into law.
