How to use "Suicide by cop" in context?

It's difficult to estimate how many suicide deaths by cop take place each year; however, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) believes that the number is in the double digits. The prevalence of suicide among police officers can be traced back to the early days of law enforcement when officers were often the first line of defense against crime. In times of personal or professional stress, officers may find it difficult to cope and turn to suicide as a solution.

Officers who kill themselves often do so with extreme methodical precision.
