Suicides hit Uruguyan police force

Montevideo, Apr 22 (Prensa Latina) In the last 24 hours two Uruguayan policemen committed suicide, a scourge that is hitting this force again.

A female officer, from the National Rehabilitation System, took her own life and an officer from the Tacuarembo department headquarters also killed himself.

Ricardo Gonzalez, of the National Police Union, regretted the facts and detailed that in the first four months of the year six officers have killed themselves.

These are situations that are repeated year after year without an institutional response, he told the press.
