LAS VEGAS -- It is a staggering statistic. According to one study, somewhere in the United States a police officer will commit suicide every two days.

Just this week it happened in Boulder City. While we still don't know why Metro Lt. Hans Walters killed his family and then himself, there is help out there for officers struggling with emotional issues.

News 3's Denise Rosch reports on how one former cop is reaching out to others.
