On November 2, 2022: Patrol officers responded to a report of a death by suicide at a residence in Monterey. The deceased Mother and Father were understandably unconsolable. Officers repeatedly had to comfort and restrain the parents to prevent them from hurting themselves or disturbing the scene. Although there were multiple public safety departments on scene initially, MPD had the responsibility to investigate the circumstances of the incident and maintain the integrity of the scene until the coroner arrived. Long after other public safety departments had left, the mPD officers remained on scene balancing between offering comfort and ascertaining the circumstances. These officers are commended for acting with compassion and professionalism in an incredibly tragic and difficult environment.
