Abstract The rate of in-custody suicide is currently lower than that of the general public largely due to comprehensive screening, assessment, treatment and surveillance programs for at-risk subjects. Despite the low rate of occurrence, inmate suicide remains a problem for correctional institutions both as a fundamental tragedy with the loss of life as well as the failure of the system to protect those in custody. Even rare suicide incidents can still place large burdens on the institution that tarnish the reputation of law enforcement, increase the costs of litigation, and drive expanded operational needs for continuous inmate monitoring.
