Statement of Work

The purpose of this initiative is to assist Sailors and their families during emotional or stressful
times to avoid irreversible actions to end their lives and provide the opportunity for intervention
and care.



Means Safety has been demonstrated to be effective in significantly reducing suicide in multiple
studies. On 20 Jan 2017, the Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness) directed the
Military Departments to review and enhance all policies and procedures related to means safety
to include safe-storage of firearms for service members and their families and access to gun
locks. Approximately 70 percent of Service member deaths by suicide, as reported in the 2014
“Department of Defense Suicide Event Report,” were by means of firearms. Gun locks have
been proven effective towards reduction of suicides by delaying individual’s access to a firearm
when they are at risk.
