The Newport News Police Department is participating in a national effort to raise awareness about suicide prevention. 

The hashtag “#BeThe1To” walks you through five simple steps of reaching out and caring for your loved during their crisis. 

First responders, including dispatchers and law enforcement officers, are often the first the come in contact with your loved one when they are in crisis. We are affected by their pain.
