Officer Louis Enrique Martinez of the Chicago Police Department has a Master of Arts Degree and is the 1st Vice President of the Illinois Academy of Criminology as well as a member of the editorial board of The Journal of Police Crisis Negotiations.  Louis Enrique Martinez is the author of The Secret Deaths: Patrol Officer's Testimonial Views on Police Suicides and Why Suicides Continues to be Hidden in Police Departments.

According to the book description of The Secret Deaths: Patrol Officer's Testimonial Views on Police Suicides and Why Suicides Continues to be Hidden in Police Departments, “This book is about the police culture and how it affects officers when they are faced with personal issues. It's about the topic of suicide and the police. It is about how the public sees and feels about suicide and let me tell you it is totally different on how police officers see it when one of their own takes their life. It's about how police departments across the country stigmatize police suicides and refuse to accept it for what it really is. Suicide is a tragedy, and it is an illness.”

 

About the Chicago Police Department
The Chicago Police Department is divided into 25 police districts. Each district has between 9 and 15 police beats, with a total 281 beats throughout the city of Chicago. Each of the 25 police districts is led by a district commander who, in addition to uniformed police officers, has teams of undercover tactical and gang police officers at his or her disposal. The Chicago Police Department Districts are organized into five larger organization entities called Areas. These area commanders report to the Bureau of Patrol. In addition to the Bureau of Patrol, the Chicago Police Department has four other bureaus: Bureau of Investigative Services; Bureau of Strategic Deployment; Bureau of Crime Strategy and Accountability; and, the Bureau of Administrative services. Instead of a Chief of Police, the Chicago Police Department has a Superintendent of Police; and, the Bureau commanders hold the rank of Deputy Superintendent.
