NYPD officers ..

It's really a thankless job. For all the men and women that do good and want to make a difference. They see shit on a regular basis, that I don't think any human should have to witness or deal with.

Compounded by everyday personal life issues. 4-5 cop suicides a year is a lot.

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- An NYPD officer has died by suicide, becoming the eighth officer to do so this year, sources tell 1010 WINS.

The officer, 35, was a seven-year-veteran of the force who was temporarily on duty surrounding Yankee Stadium.

He was found at 3:40 a.m. at his home in Yonkers, the source says.

An official told CNN that the officer left a note behind.

His fiance was in the home at the time and he died on the scene.

Six of the eight suicides in 2019 have happened since June.

The NYPD has averaged between four and five suicides a year over the last five years.

NYPD Chief of Department Terrence Monahan encouraged officers with suicidal thoughts to seek help last month, and promised there would be no reprecussions for the careers if they did so.

241 NYPD officers have died from 9/11 illnesses, 10 times the number killed at WTC

More than ten times the number of NYPD police officers have died in the 18 years since 9/11 as were killed in the terror attack on the World Trade Center itself, officials said

The grim statistic comes in the wake of a protracted battle for funding to compensate ill first responders and other survivors as well as the families of those who died. President Trumprecently signed into law a permanent extension of the funding for the Victim Compensation Fund, which would have run out of money by December 2020.

.

And while the most common killer has been cancer, new research suggests that cardiovascular disease is markedly higher in responders who were first on the scene as well as those who spent protracted periods of time on the pile.

.

To date, 241 members of the NYPD died of 9/11-related illnesses -- compared to the 23 killed in the attack on the World Trade Center."The unfortunate part is that number continues to grow," Deputy Commissioner Robert Ganley told ABC News. "It's heartbreaking. It's very sad. It's sad for the department. It's sad for the families left behind."

.

Twenty-two members of the FDNY have died of 9/11-related illnesses since the last anniversary. On Friday afternoon their names will be added to the FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall.

"Dedicated to the memory of those who bravely served this department protecting life and property in the City of New York in the rescue and recovery effort at Manhattan box 5-5-8087 World Trade Center," the wall's inscription reads.

.

"This solemn wall is a poignant and permanent reminder of the sacrifice of all that responded on September 11th and toiled for weeks and months at the World Trade Center searching for the innocent lives taken that day," said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro. "Because of their dedication and bravery, each year the already staggering loss suffered by the FDNY continues to grow as illnesses claimed the lives of those who so bravely served our city."

.

To date, 202 FDNY members have died of illnesses related to their service on Sept. 11 or in the immediate aftermath. In the attack itself, 343 members died...

Touré did a good interview with some NYC police officers there last year, i'm not a huge Touré fan but it's worth a listen:
