NEW YORK — For the fourth time this month, an NYPD officer has committed suicide, this time at a home in Hicksville, an NYPD spokesman said Thursday.

The officer’s name was not immediately released. The NYPD said he was 53 years old and had been on the force for 24 years. He was assigned to the 50th Precinct in the Bronx, according to the spokesman.

Speaking to reporters Thursday afternoon, NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan urged officers not to shy away from seeking help if they feel they need it — and that the topic shouldn’t be a taboo.
