A thriving community in Riverside County, Beaumont has a population of about 40,000 residents. Over 45 percent of the homes in Beaumont have children under the age of 18. There is also a fairly large population of older residents in the city, people enjoying their Golden Years.

Unfortunately, Beaumont garnered national attention in the past few years over a massive scandal involving the city’s governmental leadership. The public became aware of an “issue” involving Beaumont city leadership when investigators from the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI raided City Hall. During the raid, these law enforcement officials and investigators seized computers, records, and a myriad of other items.

Ultimately, seven high-ranking government officials were charged with stealing about $43 million from city accounts. Those arrested and charged with a number of crimes, including theft and public corruption, included the city manager and the city attorney.

Despite this notorious criminal activity striking at the heart of Beaumont, overall the city has a crime rate that is at about the national average when it comes to property crimes. In addition, the violent crime rate in Beaumont is markedly lower than the national average. The violent crime rate is at about half the national average.

Suicide in Beaumont

The fact that violent crime is below the national average in the city, Beaumont has experienced the tragedy of residents taking their own lives. Each year, Beaumont oftentimes loses one of its own to a suicide. In some of those instances of suicide, a person takes his or her own life in a violent manner. For example, some people who take their lives in Beaumont elect to do so using a firearm or knife.

The unfortunate reality when it comes to suicide by firearm or knife if that those who are left behind are faced with an even more challenging situation when it comes to the aftermath of this type of death. The family of a person who takes his or her life by means of a firearm or knife is responsible for the cleanup associated with the death.

The task of suicide cleanup is daunting. The scene of suicide by firearm or knife is unimaginable in some cases.

People who’ve lost a loved one by suicide ensures unimaginable grief. That grief is only unnecessarily magnified if family members and other loved ones elect to personally take on the challenging task of cleaning up following a suicide. The same holds true in the aftermath of certain types of homicides, certain types of accidents, and after the discovery of an unattended death.

Rather than make the bereavement process unnecessarily more challenging, family members and others who’ve lost a loved one by suicide, homicide, accident, or as the result of an unattended death, need to consider seriously employing the professional services of a biohazard cleanup specialist.
