‘It’s a massacre’: Rising number of suicides among French police condemned by union

Police unions in France have reacted with “great anger” to the news of two more suspected service suicides over the weekend in the country.

“It’s a massacre,” the UNSA-Police union’s Thomas Toussaint told French media. He noted that it took until August last year for the number of suspected or proved officer suicides, currently 25,  to reach 2019’s level.

A female officer who worked for a suburban Paris station was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Le Parisien. Local media in the town of Ales also reported the discovery of the body of a male officer who had disappeared one week previously. Source: RT
