As suicides in the force rise, Kerala cops to get stress management lessons
The Kerala government will introduce a new course in police training that will include lessons on mental fitness. This is because of the rising stress levels among policemen.
Thirty one policemen killed themselves between 2012 to 2014 and Kerala reports the third highest suicidal deaths in the police department in India.
Tamil Nadu with 116 deaths and Karnataka with 39,are the top two states.
The main cause of police suicides is the work overload due to lack of enough personnel and this puts enormous pressure.
